Zamek Gniewie, Gniew, Poland. Presented by NOTOR and Zamek Gniewie

Segue I and Segue II are permanent installations at the 750-year-old Teutonic castle of Gniew, Poland. They are acknowledged as the first public sculpture in the town’s history. Created for the southern edge of Gniew’s plateau, overlooking the Vistual River Valley, they mark a connection between Gniew and another Teutonic castle in the distance. Both function as primitive surveyor instruments. The vistas between fortified neighbors are aliened.

They reverberate. Wind blows over the plateau and through layers of knocking wood. The thumping sound travels over the valley below. This preserved 450-year-old  timber, once used for Gdansk housing foundations along the Baltic shore, was generously donated by the Archeology Museum of Gdansk in collaboration with Gniew Castle and NOTORO International Art Symposium.
