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.
The fabric of the skin, wrinkles, hand gestures. The joint exhibition of works by Zofia Rydet (1911–1997) and Aneta Grzeszykowska (born 1974) is a show of two artists who use the camera to construct captivating and rhetorically rich images of the female body.
