- Vaughan - a character of the film „Crash” direct- ed by David Cronenberg - explains why he makes shows about car crashes „it’s something in what we are all involved - „transforming the ideal body by modern technologies” in a word – convert- ing the nature by artificial remedies. For Golisze- wski the inspiration by the film makes from his site-specific object a metaphor about an artist.
In Hobrechtstrasse in Berlin there is an ate- lier Studio 54 where about 10 artists work con- tinually. They function in a closed circuit. They are separated from the street by glass window sticking out from the wall like a big aquarium. Jerzy Goliszewski covers the window with the body of a car and he creates a work which di- vides those two worlds even stronger. The spec- tator can view this piece only from the street. He is deprived of the view from the other side.
The piece „Crash” includes many embossments and foldings, thanks to which it reminds of an ide- al profiled body of a car, which – perfected by the artist – is thus raised to the rank of a monument.
