At first glance, one can assume that Igor Omulecki’s works from the Solaris cycle stay within the orbit of post-minimalism and op-art. After all, the minds of the inhabitants of the art world are somehow trained to create such connotations. However, as Władysław Strzemiński put it in his Theory of Seeing: “It is not what the eye catches mechanically that matters in the process of seeing, but the consciousness man has of his seeing.”

The “Magnetic Sculptures” project by Honza Zamojski is a series of overscaled black-and-white photographs depicting sculptures made of tiny magnets. Recalling the tone and proportion of Brassaï’s famous portfolio “Les Sculptures de Picasso”, Zamojski’s shadowy monuments also invoke the unrealized forms of constructivist architecture.

This series by New York artist Shelli Weiler presents forms of escapist amusement as hostile and uninhabitable environments. Subjects and spaces are produced in the pursuit of ideals, where sites for entertainment are fashioned by their shortcomings. Through the negation of colour, this series focuses on how the construction of fantasy inevitably entails its own failure.

Malala Andrialavidrazana’s works are remarkably personal in their nature, actively referring to the idea of territory – a concept the artist had researched for several years. Her images are filled with concern about cross-cultural dialogue, locality, and all kinds of sociological, economic and political constructs that stand – even if just a little – against the constant advance of globalization.

Young people occupy an extraordinary place in the history of Września. They were the heroes of the Września children strike that later became a symbol of young people’s struggle for freedom – of the individual and the nation alike. Almost 120 years after those events took place, photographer Zuza Krajewska was invited to create this year’s edition of the Września Collection project. The artist decided to take a closer look at the contemporary generation of young Poles from Września.

Wojtek Wieteska is trying to understand the psychology of the portrayed girl by playing with the reproduction that he ‘takes’ on real trips around the world. He exercises the capacity of van der Weyden’s image, designing new ‘versions’ of the model and, by extension, her personality.
