This was a site-specific public installation created directly onto a residential building in Katowice, Poland, using over six hundred square metres of golden wallpaper. ‘ZŁOTY’ reflects on the aspirations of the former residents and the region’s history of gradual decline following the collapse of the local mining industry. The title (literally translated as ‘golden’) is the name of Poland’s currency and refers to the gold wallpaper completely covering the abandoned residential building.
