revelation (2007)

video-performance, DVD PAL 16:9, 3’00’’

The film is a recording of a performance that took place in the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw in February 2007. For 5 following weeks on Sunday at 6 pm for about 2 minutes in one of the windows of the Palace from the side of the “Kinoteka” there appeared a figure looking like a Catholic Virgin Mary. In the bright blue light the silent figure of Madonna appears in the window in full, she slowly raises her hands, then drops them and disappears. The motif of the “side flats” (make-up and preparatory actions) was added to the film, as well as the specially composed organ music.
