The realization of "The Infinite Green", 2015, was created in the courtyard between newly established housing communities on Barlickiego Street in Wroclaw as a part of the program “Wrocław - Entrance from the courtyard” and supposed to be a catalyst for social change. Wroclaw is a special city in Poland because it has only been within the Republic since 1945 and consists entirely of immigrant populations originating mainly from the pre-war eastern parts of Poland. After the social and economic changes that took place in Poland after 1989, the housing communities gained full ownership of the buildings, in which people had lived for several decades. The realization of “The Infinite Green” was to evoke the phenomenon of social empathy to initiate changes in the courtyard striving the residents to a common work of reconstruction of the courtyard onto green oasis for rest and recreation. Around the realization local community gathered already. The form incorporates symbol of infinity into sculptural structure which symbolizes eternality and importance of living nature for human beings as a necessary factor for survival of human race.
Project was launched in the summer 2015 as a part of Visual Art Program of European Capital of Culture WROCLAW 2016 and was run till 2021.
