Janine Miedzik’s Façade acts as a veneer over the white interior of the window space. Using a material approach that embodies the artificiality and impermanence of a Potemkin Village (the Russian minister’s attempt at deceptive temporary cloak of prosperity to cover the effects of drought), the decal is created out of large sections of masking and duct tape, materials commonly used for temporary repair.

Miedzik work responds to architectural space and considers our interactions with it–the shifting face of neighborhoods, and the renovation and gentrification that accompany our migrations.
