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?

Curator Łukasz Trzciński

Matej Vakula invites us on a journey. Let us say that he is taking us twenty years ahead. 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? What will it be able to contribute to reality and what borders will it be made to cross? Whom are we going to define as an artist fifty years from now? And finally, are we not going to speak art to death until then?!
We encourage you to explore this question on board of Space Ship Bright House, it’s cockpit occupied in the coming months by artists-in-residence in Place Called Space. It is to them that Matej Vakula, the first resident in the program, dedicates his exhibition.

Thanks to objects donated by the Kraków artistic community, the cockpit of the spaceship acquired the first pieces of equipment. Processed by the artist, they gained a new life, and although they now fulfil a completely different role,

under the shimmering colours of their thin varnish we still can to a large extent recognise and sense their previous shapes. Matej would be happy to receive new objects, which he would endow with a new life and role. Each new object increases the chance that we will get further and further. This plea is all the more important to us that until now no Kraków artist has decided to part with his or her work of art…
