FGF, Warsaw is both a collaborative sculpture and a mobile gallery space; its walls can be fitted together to form a transit crate. It brings together elements relating to the history of the Foksal Gallery Foundation, Warsaw, and of particular significance to Althamer. Artworks commissioned specifically for the mobile space, include a video by Artur Zmijewski, a door-handle bearing the handprint of Monika Sosnowska and a painting by Wilhelm Sasnal that functions as a ceiling.
