The collaboration between the poetess Agniezka Kuciak and the artist Peter Weidenbaumaround Montgomery resulted in a monumental lifeguard's chair on Montgomery Square. They also made a journal full of interviews, paintings and poetry, and mapped out an original walking route through the neighbourhood.
At the foot of this chair by Peter Weidenbaum you can read one of Agniezka Kuciak's poems. Weidenbaum based his work on the hustle and bustle that characterises Montgomery. He designed an extremely high lifeguard's chair in stainless steel. In the concrete surface to which the chair is attached there is a poem by Kuciak. In this way Weidenbaum invites the passer-by to imagine a bird's-eye view of the city, to reflect on surroundings that are always in motion and to allow himself a moment of tranquillity in his daily activities.
