UPCOMING EXHIBITION

Alicja Pakosz
VORTICES

The first individual show at Raster by Alicja Pakosz (born 1996) is a nar­rative woven around the figure of a toxic landscape—obsessively retur­ning as a clas­sic motif from the history of pain­ting and also a vision evoking fear, an under­lying anxiety. An image appearing in the least expec­ted moment like hal­lucinations pres­sing under the eyelids. Something morbid and not entirely benign. The artist plays out this story like film frames in a series of pain­tings in two dif­ferent scales and a fully-​formed diorama.

UPCOMING EXHIBITION

Zofia Rydet
ENDLESSLY DISTANT ROADS

Zofia Rydet (1911–1997), creator of the iconic Sociological Record and the fan­tastic World of Feelings and Imagination, was an artist gifted with a sense for observing the entropy of the world around her. This excep­tional photographic per­spec­tive is revealed in all its power in the series Endles­sly Distant Roads, executed in 1980. In the exhibition at Raster, we present a selec­tion of 40 photographs from this unusual and rarely shown collection.

Krzysztof Zieliński
HOMETOWN

Wąbrzeźno, an ordinary little town star­ting with W, down near the end of the alphabet, in a lan­guage where “w” could stand for wszędzie—anywhere, por­trayed by the photographer after a decade of sys­temic chan­ges up to the eve of Poland’s joining the European Union, became a visual synonym for the creeping trans­for­mation. Wor­king on colour negatives and alluding to the minimalist poetics of topographic photography, Zieliński created an image of the post-​socialist coun­tryside that is the first of its kind, moving and empathetic, con­struc­ted from mist and a thousand and one shades of grey.

EXHIBITIONS 2020

Michał Budny, Kajetan Sosnowski
EQUIVALENT ARRANGEMENT

At the joint exhibition Equivalent Arran­gement Michał Budny and Kajetan Sosnow­ski meet for the first time. The works of both artists, seemin­gly abs­tract, in various ways defy easy clas­sifications of genre. They operate through images and masses but use little pain­ting or sculp­ting. Their com­positions generally finds its origins in an abs­tract drawing—noted on paper or only conceptualized—as a type of minimalist score, the sim­plest recor­ding of an idea.

Collector’s offer


Posters

Original posters by Edward Dwur­nik from the 1980s, which accom­panied individual shows by the artist. The expres­sive style of these works and the spareness of their prin­ting per­fec­tly cap­ture the specific climate of the crisis decade of mar­tial law, strikes, and the dawn of the Polish transformation.

(Polski) “Rzadko jest tak, że patrząc na obraz widzimy go w całej okazałości. Możemy go zobaczyć albo z dystansu albo z bliska, przyglądając się detalom, próbując wyłapać wzrokiem pociągnięcie pędzla. Aspekt patrzenia jest dla sztuki kluczowy. Możemy dowol­nie przyglądać się dziełom, ale równocześnie nie możemy ich dotknąć. Kiedy jesteśmy ograniczeni brakiem jed­nego ze zmysłów, wtedy nasilają się pozostałe. A kiedy przed­miot, na który patrzymy nie jest zbyt wyraźny, wyostrzamy wzrok.”
