by Jan Szewczyk

A title „ ” is an ideograph of the work by Jan Szewczyk. The fuller expression can be obta- ined with a minimal entry „ ”. The outer signs constitute two video works that are shown at the opposite walls, the inner ones constitute sculpture object – a quotation from an exposition at the Belgrade museum. Such an entry „ ” means quoting the invisibility – the semantic axis of the work.

„ ” is also an invitation to palindromic interpretation of the installation. A boy hidden under a blanket is reading memories of the F-117 pilot, and he is dreaming about the flight, full of freedom and strength, amid the clouds – he stands at the helm of the invisible fighter plane. At the helm of an invisible fighter plane a pilot carry out the mission with the feeling of freedom and strength. This time de construction of the myth will occur about the undetectable plane. The shot pilot in hiding is waiting for rescue.

The cockpit that was shot off during catapulting – the trophy, was exhibited at the Museum of Aviation in Belgrade, and for Jan Szewczyk it becomes the object – the quotation from invisibility.
