Otto Alder Exhibition “Papirossy” -  Animation / Installation -
Otto spc Sixty sheets of paper are displayed on both the right side wall and left side wall. There are vague orange images on each of the sheets of paper. The exhibition room is displayed with flowers and filled with their scent. On the wall at the end of the room, an X-ray photo of a chest is displayed, and an animation film made of orange stained sheets is playing on a DVD monitor.
Actually “Papirosy” means cigarette in Polish. The orange color on the paper represents the stains from cigarette smoke. Alder himself used rolling paper and rolling tobacco when he smoked cigarettes. He says that the passing of time and what he had experienced and felt were frozen in the color orange at that time. The X-ray photo taken last summer is of his lungs. He was diagnosed by his doctor as being completely healthy, although he was a heavy smoker.
