The sound installation of the artists from the Might Group referred to the history of the S. Tołpa Park and its surroundings. However, it was about history perceived, experienced and told subjectively – i.e. the one which emerges from individual experience and cannot be expressed in general statements. One of the park alleys was treated by the artists as a kind of tunnel, surrounded by greenery, leading through a multiplied tale about a years-long relationship with the place and how it changed. Through loudspeakers placed among the branches of lush bushes, one could hear overlapping tales of local inhabitants – who sometimes arrived here just after the war. Birdsong Radio was an artwork about memory which, in a poetic way, attempted to save ordinary people’s everyday experiences from oblivion.
