Fulfilling the long-held dream of a garden in the gallery, we invite visitors to a meadow where wildflowers mingle with weeds, day with night, art with the memory of art. At the exhibition can be seen works by Michał Budny, Oskar Dawicki, Edward Dwurnik, Milena Korolczuk, Przemysław Kwiek, Marcin Maciejowski, Przemysław Matecki, Bartek Materka, Cyryl Polaczek, Zbigniew Rogalski, Łukasz Rusznica, Maria Szkop.
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.
The show “Neither” is Budny’s latest radical statement, this time with a vector aiming upwards, “into space, far from earthly concerns and triviality, from the quotidian and everything that weighs us down and detracts us from what is important.”

The post-romantic figure of the drunken artist is fading into the past, leaving behind a landscape littered with hallucinations, depravity, and shattered illusions. This is the story of the intimate ties between contemporary art and vodka. Conceived as a medley of artworks and documentary content, the exhibition features Krzysztof M. Bednarski, Olaf Brzeski, Michał Budny, Rafał Bujnowski, Oskar Dawicki, Edward Dwurnik, Władysław Hasior, Jerzy Lewczyński, Honorata Martin, Dominika Olszowy, Zbigniew Rogalski, Wilhelm Sasnal, and others.
When considering Budny’s works, one is consistently awed by the noble, subdued power packed into those simple, natural gestures, materials and forms. The latest exhibition develops the fundamental themes within the practice of this extraordinary artist in a new way—struggling with the material and the space, the emotions and the architecture. “Crown” is an exacting composition of individual objects that correspond and, in turn, provoke one another. They are all connected through a striking manifestational quality, precision and uncompromising character.
