Two artists: Malgorzata Wielek-M and Paweł Hajncel will take you, Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, to the darkest nooks and crannies of human ecstasies and stimulants through the sleaziest areas, the spookiest corners, the most dangerous places, where the human brain feeds and later digests naughty thoughts, kinky dreams, where the smell of sulfur mixes with the smell of...»
Difficult conditions on the market today meaning lack of a permanent source of income, money for art projects, the expectation to hold regular exhibitions and to remain popular all the time frustrate artists. Andrzej Baziak and Karolina Łukawska referring to recent events, a robbery of the ATM at ul. Teligi in Krakow, set up camp at Galeria Olympia, where they plan an ATM robbery. All their plans and props indicate their incompetence and naivety. Instead of paying attention to the essential...»
Every day, each of us jumps into the future in our mind. Scientists, journalists, analysts, fortune tellers all do it. Who can you trust? Wiki Królikowska and Zbigniew Olszyna decided to trust each other. Hence an...»
Drifting means floating of matter and things. Compensatory flight upwards. Unrestricted movement caused by the wind or electricity. This term also applies to continents and their long-term migration.
And when you lay down your body, does the rhythm take you into the unknown?

Exhibition Off your knees. Poland is a dream at Galeria Olympia/ 10.11.-16.12.2018/

Is it just a dream? We suggest a civic celebration and artistic activation, action and...»
For the artist Anna Grochowska/ Seliger, parallel worlds are two simultaneous periods of work which include the golden and the blue age. A series of paintings triggered off by the view of the well-known unfinished Krakow sky scraper called Szkieletor in Polish (from skeleton, as its steel construction is visible) belongs to the blue age. Work on these paintings required a lot of discipline and the artist sometimes interrupted work on the golden age to do it.
A famous philosopher once declared that man is a being created to live in the Central Parlour more than a bee or any animal living in a herd, that is absolutely clear. And anyone who by nature, and not by chance, lives outside the Parlour, is either miserable or a superhuman being like the one whom Homer reviles for being "without society, without law, without family”, isolated, like a dice excluded from a game.
This seems obvious, however it is not so. This is proved...»
The exhibition is organised by Nuremberg House of Cracow under the direction of Renata Kopyto in cooperation with Fred...»
"One evening at the end of January I looked out the window. The grey-blue sky covered with clouds merged with the dark earth. Behind the horizon of the mountains the light disappeared in various shades of blue.
I don’t remember how nature became the main theme of my work but it has always been important to me. As time went by, the images became more and more synthetic not because of any assumption, but due to my own experience of dealing with nature which still affects my way of perceiving reality. I don’t invent ideas or forms. They come by...»
