Janek Simon, Meta Folklore v0.2.5, 2022, print 3D, polymer PLA, 68 × 18 × 14 cm


Simon col­lec­ted a large database of images from websites like Etsy and Ebay, that problematically categorize folk­loric sculp­tures from around the world. He then used machine-​learning programs, artificial intel­ligence, and 3D prin­ting tech­niques to produce new sculptures that everyone and at the same time no-​one can recognise them­selves in. This way, Simon’s work is a gesture that brings focus to open­ness and common grounds, amidst the devastating geopolitical con­flicts of cur­rent times.

        Growing up in Poland during the 1980’s amidst post-​war dichotomies, Simon developed an anar­chist political position and a resistance to reducing the world into categories. Com­bined with his urge to intrude on over­powering, opaque tech­nologies, Simon sees the DIY approach as a tool to reap­propriate tech­nology and to empower people to disman­tle sim­plistic con­structs of reality, categorization and hierarchies.

Aneta Grzeszykowska, Negative Make-Up, 2016, pigment ink on cotton paper, [2x] 100 x 70 cm, ed. 3 + 1 AP


In the series "Negative Make-Up" Grzeszykowska uses colorful makeup in a playful manner. In one of the photographs her lips are stained with lipstick while on the other it’s her whole face except her lips that’s colorful. The photographs that formally reflect official portraits used for documents are on the one hand a type of conventional and schematized photography and on the other they are a subversion of the portrayal of women in popular culture. By putting lipstick all over her face, Grzeszykowska, instead of making herself beautiful emphathizes her natural wrinkles.
