Krzysztof Zieliński

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.


Michał Budny, Kajetan Sosnowski

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.

1000 HANDS

Metaphorically and seasonally, the exhibition 1000 Hands suits the climate of the pre-​spring thaw, illuminating a land­scape of exhaustion and approaching, intuitively sensed change. In Polish literature this metaphor car­ries a political dimen­sion. In the works shown together here by Rafał Buj­now­ski (1974–), Peter Puklus (1980–) and Zofia Rydet (1911–1997), what is vital is the very process of trans­for­mation, and the accom­panying ambivalence, the tem­perature of inter­per­sonal relations and the poten­tial of the human hands from the title.
