Janek Simon
PEOPLE WITH THE HEADS OF DOGS

Simon’s many exotic trips over the past dozen years have served to develop his para-​artistic endeavors, vested on the frin­ges of economics, art and post-​colonial thought. His newest exhibition is an offshoot of these ear­lier experien­ces, as it also inverts the per­spec­tive of the artist as observer. Simon’s main topic of interest shifts from inter­cul­tural exchange towards the sub­jec­tive observations of a researcher-​traveler: exploration, and con­fabulation, too, of which the experien­ces of recognized travelers, repor­ters and artists are full of.

Michelle Rawlings
A GENTLE CREATURE

Relatively small in size, Michelle Rawlings’ pain­tings come together as a sequence of images, much like a blog or instagram feed. Raw­lings referen­ces various styles and genres of pain­ting, adap­ting them to her individual scale and nar­rative. The realm of her visual pur­suits is in large part focused on represen­tations of young women and girls – artists, actors and models – as well as the formal lan­guage of con­tem­porary art.

Sławomir Elsner, Zbigniew Rogalski
VIEW FROM THE DEPTHS OF THE EYE

A joint exhibition by Sławomir Elsner and Zbigniew Rogal­ski reveals images that customarily only artists are privy to – inside the studio and across land­scapes viewed from the depth’s of the painter’s eye. Each of these artists is fascinated by the conven­tions and the ethereal aspect of pain­ting, while the works on show also exhibit a self-​reflection on the typicality of the space in which art is created, and on the delusory nature of mankind’s visual apparatus.

Błażej Pindor
PAŁAC LX

In the 60 years since the erec­tion of Warsaw’s Palace of Cul­ture and Science, this peculiar architec­tural struc­ture remains an impenetrable aesthetic phenomenon. Błażej Pindor’s photography project is the first ear­nest attempt at an artistic inter­pretation of the space within and around the Palace. The essence of his photography is an analysis of the impact the struc­ture has on the viewer – dominating, rescaled, sel­fish and opulent beyond measure, at the same time raw and seductive.

Jan Tomza Osiecki
ISPC

Jan Tomza-​Osiecki is part of a generation for whom the inten­sive experience of vir­tual reality – via new media, the Inter­net, simple program­ming lan­guages, gaming, and 3D graphics and design – is key to creating works of art. His point of depar­ture is the abs­tract sculp­tural form, which he animates through the introduc­tion of sound, endowing it with real­ness and dynamism; the func­tioning of his interac­tive objects is based on a feed­back effect, which is typically con­sidered undesirable among engineers. The noisome issue of feed­back is now at the heart of the object’s pur­pose, opening up the field of experimen­tation and creating possibilities for gaining a new under­stan­ding for familiar spaces and the movement’s of one’s own body.

Aneta Grzeszykowska
SELFIE

Mistyfikacja należy do ulubionych metod twórczych Anety Grzeszykow­skiej. Artystka kon­sekwent­nie, wręcz obsesyj­nie rozkłada na części swój wizerunek, znika bądź pod­szywa się pod cudze tożsamości. Analiza procesów autokreacji­ – jed­nego z fun­damen­tal­nych tematów sztuki, ale także pod­stawowej kwestii dla kon­dycji dzisiej­szego, post­medial­nego społeczeństwa – ­jest również prze­wod­nim motywem naj­now­szej serii zdjęć.

TRUE AND CLEAR PHOTOGRAPHY

Wystawa prezen­tuje fotografie dwójki pra­skich artystów – Lukáša Jasanský i Mar­tina Poláka – którzy od 1985 roku wspólnie testują konwencjonalność medium fotograficz­nego. Ich prace czerpią zarówno z tradycji sztuki kon­cep­tual­nej jak i klasycz­nej fotografii studyj­nej, krajobrazowej czy ulicz­nej, nie­zmien­nie przy tym uwodząc sub­tel­nym poczuciem humoru. Ludzie podglądani na ulicy i staran­nie kom­ponowane, choć bardzo codzienne martwe natury – zwyczajność staje się tu przed­miotem wysmakowanej gry. Prowadzi ona do zaskakujących, estetycz­nych przygód, ale i bar­dziej general­nej reflek­sji na temat istoty fotografii, jej relacji do rzeczywistości, funk­cji dokumen­tal­nej i kreacyjnej.

SOCIETY IS MEAN

This exhibition takes place in a coun­try whose society has a rather poor opinion of itself. The society is mean, the society is aging, and the force which is driving us toward all this is the progres­sive stabilization, which seems to have effec­tively conquered us after years of figh­ting on various fronts. Life in Poland has become ter­rifyin­gly ordinary. The works making up the Society Is Mean exhibition are not essen­tially asocial, but they do bril­lian­tly render the distance between the individual and the society around him or her. The artists whose works we are presen­ting give us a wholesale revision of this con­sen­sus; the sphere of their con­fron­tation with society is its lan­guage, its living space, and its dominant, stereo­typical inter­per­sonal relationships.
