The sculpture shows stairs leading to the basement of a villa in Wrocław. The original stairs have 12 steps, and each three subsequent steps are made of a different material: concrete, ceramics, wood and metal, which refers to the visual “weight” of individual steps. Initially created as part of a series of sculptures titled Toniewrocław, the object functions in its own right during the Review, providing a commentary on the character and state of the former barracks. The steps of the sculpture have caved in, which corresponds with the visible damage to the tissue of the edifice after almost 100 years of exploitation. Moreover, the sculpture is located at the end of a blind corridor, symbolising all the deadlocks of life as expressed by phrases such as “a road to nowhere” or “a deadend situation.”
