Bread head sculptures

Bread head sculptures – András Böröcz
2003 – New York

One of András Böröcz and his wife Robbin Ami Silverberg’s actions was carried out at the Popieluszko Square next to their apartment, the purpose of which was to have the pigeons floating in the square devouring or at least breaking down the sculptures made of bread. The pigeons walked around the bread heads, but did not harm them, paying tribute to Böröcz’s art. The square was named after a Polish priest murdered in 1987. Later the Polish community in Brooklyn erected a statue for his memory. The head of the statue was broken on the day before the initiation. Böröcz reacted with the Breadhead statue in action, documented by Robbin Ami Silverberg and become the Bread Head Story.
