Malgorzata Szymankiewicz - Reflectiving View

6/20/2017 – 7/30/2017

Malgorzata Szymankiewicz

opening: 20.06.2017, 6pm


The cycle of works created as a part of the REFLECTING VIEW exhibition
is related to public space and addresses the problem of overproduction
of images in the contemporary visual culture. Her object of interest is
the material proofs of advertising and marketing activities in the form
of boards, display cases, lightboxes and banners. Using post-painting
imaging methods, Szymankiewicz processed them, creating objects that
work mainly through their rhythm, colour and texture. Examining the
language of advertising – which imposes a specific way of seeing and
manipulating viewer/consumer – the artist was looking for the
possibility of creating abstract forms and objects capable of generating
new meanings.

REFLECTING VIEW is yet another project in which Szymankiewicz refers to
the issue of creators getting entangled in the mechanisms of economy
that determine the functioning of the functioning of the art market and
advertising market. The artist emphasises the unconscious activities
which are reflected not only in the ways the works are presented, but
also in the process of building the position of young creators.

"Reflection": This year’s presentation is grouped around the subject of reflection with its two meanings: On one hand as an intellectual process during the creation of art – What is abstraction? What can painting be today? etc. – and on the other hand as a simple physical phenomenon that has fascinated mankind all along.

#library

1/27/2017 – 2/28/2017

What is the role of the library today? After all, we no longer believe that all available knowledge of the world can be gathered in one place. Are books and the vision of the world they convey becoming obsolete? Why does an electronic library have more borrowers than a traditional one?

The exhibition #library

, featuring seventeen Polish and international artists, asks questions about the status and the transformations of library from a present-day perspective. The hashtag attached to the title is both a sign of the times and a play on that signifier which enables grouping information; in a sense, it is a shelf mark thanks to which one can easily find their bearings amidst virtual resources.

In Search of the Present

10/12/2016 – 12/8/2016

Erwin Olaf

In Search of the Present turns the gaze towards current issues that are shaping art and society at large and encourages viewers to participate in the public debate. With its themes, The New Me, Digital Mankind and Nature Kingdom, the exhibition explores the nature of human beings that inhabit a global digital world and their relationship to the environment, themselves and other human beings. The New Me theme described how we build ourselves and our identities in present age by using even quite extreme methods. The human being has become stronger as and operator and factor than ever before. Digital Mankind is a theme that discusses digitalisation and how it changes not only the individual but the entire humankind; we are on the verge of a major shift, which will change the way we think and act. Nature Kingdom talks about how desperately the humankind is striving to contain nature and the animal kingdom, alas with no success.

The first edition of the exhibition series explores the nature of human beings that inhabit a global digital world and their relationship to the environment, themselves and other human beings.
