Izabela Maciejewska in cooperation with Piotr Michnikowski (diploma 1985, Sculpture, Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw). Work inspired by Andrea della Robia ceramics (Spedale degli Innocenti).The Museum of conceived soldiers is an ironic and critical commentary on the destructive, but still valid, patriarchal (national-military) cultural patterns that carry, inter alia, the legitimacy of violence, the sanctioning of war as a natural human activity, also in a religious context, as well as physical and psychological violence towards women - alongside the worship of the unborn. In a universal sense, this is a perverse message about the lack of respect for a human being, treated from conception like "cannon fodder", where the pattern of struggle and death for the homeland is promoted as moral and attractive. In this context, the protection of conceived life (such a lively topic in Polish national discourse) acquires a dimension of powerful irony. It is intended that the work forces a deeper reflection on life in general, also against the background of phenomena occurring in Polish society.
