The point of departure for Sława Harasymowicz’s exhibition is a tragedy that took place in the closing days of World War II, in Neustadt Bay, near Lübeck. Prisoners evacuated from the Neuengamme concentration camp lost their lives in the bombardment of three German ships by the RAF; among those who perished was the artist’s great-uncle, Marian Górkiewicz. The artist undertook years of research to learn the circumstances behind her relative’s death.

Balarama Heller’s project “Zero at The Bone” presents an eerie view of primordial, reptilian life in the Everglades. An oft-documented area, Heller’s project is altogether unique: choosing to shoot in the darkness of night, when the outline of the familiar is dimmed, Heller draws on “symbolism and the haptic” to present the relationship between predator and prey as nebulous.

Well, everyone in Poland knows that quite clearly. We can hear Gombrowicz chuckle from beyond the grave... Why?

Garden

Garden

Media / Photo
The project “Garden” by Marta Zgierska and Mateusz Sarełło is an invitation to observe a couple in a dialogue, negotiating their relationship and their collaborative authorship. The boundaries between the two are ambiguous; obsessive, poetic and analytical. Zgierska is dedicated to systematic fragmentation and dissection of the image of her own body, but at the same time also the dissection of flowers as symbols of other women. This results in persistent acts of contradictory self-inscriptions, at the same time violent and subtle.
