I.
Exhibition title: A Room and a Half
Artist/s: Laura Lima
Venue: Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art
Dates: Until October 10 2017


A Room and a Half is an invitation to enter a situation that escapes rational logic, balancing on the edge of an understatement and a joke. The first solo exhibition in Poland of Laura Lima, one of the most recognizable Brazilian artists of her generation, tells about the margins of our perception, blurring the differences between reality and illusion. In works presented in Warsaw, the artist uses architecture to modify the feeling of the space.

III.
Exhibition title: Breaking Through Photography
Artist/s: Marek Piasecki, Józef Robakowski
Venue: The Asymetria Gallery
Dates: Until July 15, 2017


Marek Piasecki and Józef Robakowski belong to a generation of artists affected by the catastrophe of World War II. The former moves to Kraków after the fall of the Warsaw Uprising, when his family home is destroyed; the latter, following the death of his cavalryman father (in the Battle of Bzura), grows up in an orphanage where his  mother is employed. Both biographical orders intersect somehow.
Are the two artists’ non-camera yet photographic gestures not an attempt to regain the lost language which constitutes not only abstract chemical painting, but also produces non-normative contents, the image of which reinstates in art the meaning of what, to paraphrase Agamben, historically has slipped through mankind’s fingers.
