10 Euros (Operation Bernhard), 2013

Piotr Hanzelewicz bn - ph. Ela Bialkowska

“As Nicola says, I work on remains, transparencies… Meanwhile outside all is bluish, beige and greyish.”


Piotr was born in Lodz (Poland) and lives and works in L’Aquila. His work looks at the idea of reconstruction through the deconstruction and recomposition of the €10 note. The note features the front door of a building dating back to the period of the founding of the city of L’Aquila. The artist wishes to emphasise the generative quality of shapes that are new and unexpected, but that bring us back to a  feeling of origin and original, as a wish for the rebirth of the city.
