Basia Banda

I should probably start by saying that I am mainly a painter. In my works, I often touch on personal issues. I am interested in the relationship between a man and a woman. The early period of my artistic life was on the border of painting and object making. These mainly were small compositions in pink in which I used wood and pieces of different fabrics. The paintings provoked touching and undressing which enabled viewer to discover a profound meaning of a given work of art. The last cycle of my works is inspired particularly by Grimm Brothers’ fairy tales. I am fascinated by a mixture of innocence and cruelty we can find there. The characters in my paintings are very often animals. Just like in fairy tales the animals are symbols, means of conveying ideas. The animals become symbols of the power of nature and sexuality. They are burdened with disturbing meanings. At first sight, the paintings resemble illustrations from children’s stories, but soon after, they reveal cruelty and fear. They reach human subconsciousness which is full of filth. These paintings seem to be illustrations for as yet non-existent fairy tales, written for adults.

Honza Zamojski

born.1981, lives and works in Poznan. Honza's works are inspired by a number of complementary concepts such as chance, order, repetition or temporariness. He is also looking for the little, almost trivial things which in his works are then becoming key elements. Honza believes in the idea of conveying the most essential matters through the means of a clear and direct language without any traces of pathos but based on simple honesty. “To make it work, you need to make it work” says Honza, above all emphasizing that for him there is such thing as a delightful creativity which derives its energy just from a certain loss of energy. In fact, this process is turning the artist himself into a perpetual mobile. Besides his work as an artist he co-founded the young Polish Starter Gallery in Poznan in 2005 and runs the small publishing house Morava.

Julita Paluszkiewicz

2001-2006 studied in the Painting and Multimedia Communication and Intermedia faculties at the University of Arts in Poznan. Graduated in 2006 in easel Painting and Intermedia. Works in video, paint, installation, objects, photography. Lives in Warszawa and works in the countryside I am currently focused on studying the complex relationships which exist between humans and nature, on analyzing and revealing the metamorphoses which take place in nature and the image their visual representation, as processed by humans, take. This is an attempt to understand, to feel beings, whose sensitivity is shaped by being psychologically- biologically rooted in nature as well as depend on culture.

Cyber space

The fascinating world of the undefined future, art that strikes at the very core of emotions, created by using the computer environment is a place that is dedicated to the Norman Leto’s works. Here, the viewers will see how the image materializes and dematerializes into dust. The touring route suspended in the emptiness suggests that the reality may not be real.

Photography

The collection of world famous photographer Szymon Brodziak is presented within the exquisite black space that holds a mystery. The golden lines that guide through the exposition will help in navigation and finding sensual contexts.

Sensual art

Space dedicated to the polish artist Barbara Bańda, who draws her inspiration from the topic of human carnality, she needed a very intimate and brave place for displaying her works. Eroticism in such form adds the effect of mystery and ignites senses. The viewers follow the glowing pink line which guides them through the dark interior that slowly reveals the secrets of the eroticism.

Street art

The art created in the public places, commonly on the street, is transferred to the fictional street which may exist only as an image in dreams. It’s an incredibly difficult task as the spatial concept, vital in this topic, is changed. It’s all about presetting the incredible atmosphere of an abstract place, and thanks to the virtual walk and realistic details the viewers realize that this particular place is the art subject.

Virtual collection

For the purpose of creating temporary and interchangeable collection a virtual space was created. It is filled with a net – a metaphor of a mind map and image chaos, which in everyday life surround us and interact with us. The interior is undefined, intriguing and allows presenting the art without the contextual imposition.
