What the Sun Has Seen


What the Sun Has Seen


What the Sun Has Seen borrows its title from the eponymous poem by Polish poet Maria Konopnicka, who recounts in a childish style the quotidian activities and happy family life in the countryside, as observed by the sun on its daily journey across the sky. Agnieszka Polska offers her own dark, ironic version of the poem, dealing with information overload and the role of the “helpless observer” who can only look at what’s going on without being able to intervene. In the cataclysm of data that haunts and possesses us today, nothing is really “digested,” but all items are consumed and repetition is intoxicating.
