The Second Death Of George Mallory

The exhibition touches upon the question of diverse experiencing the matter of the mountain, getting to know it, but also simply being-in-the-world: not so much of cognitive being opposite to, but of being in and next to.

The Attempt

The pre-prepared “attempt” is an attempt to/at strike, protest or revolt against the present oppression of past conditions to resolve in a hopefully bet- tered future, a social improvement.

Ground Works

Whilst mindful of the natural environment, the artists adopt a contrarian stance on land art, and embark on a plan for bio-euthanasia.

Ideal City

Nowa Huta, experimental city, created by communists' in Poland after World War II to produce New Man of the system. Symbol of modernity and progress, one of the leading tools to install new regime in Poland after 1945.

Satan’s Children

The project serves as an opportunity to explore the theme of the figure of Satan himself – timidly exorcised from the Polish culture, a symbol of rebellion and knowledge, a new beginning.

The Wall. Art Face To Face With Borders

Some stagger and fall, after all it's not easy banging your heart against some mad buggers (Pink Floyd, "Outside the Wall")

Space Ship “Jasny Dom” (Bright House)

What will art be like in the future? What senses will be contained in this concept? Is art going to have any point at all?

Secession from the Broadcast

The exhibition is a kind of tribute to Gene Youngblood - one of the key theorists of culture and new media

Repose

Repose is a need of suspension, but also of a non-obvious relation between work and a break.

(…) Behind Togetherness

Reading collectivity is a complex process – we feel an itch to have a look at lines that follow, at words that have not been said or gestures that have not been made, to see what is behind the thick wall of the term “collectively”.
