Exhibition opening: Bartłomiej Talaga, WALK IN SYNCHRONICITY
Walk in Synchronicity– provoking and discovering coincidences that, seemingly insignificant, become revelations. With a bit of luck, photography can recall them as echoes of moments experienced. Walking around and constantly returning to the same energetic and private places is a sign that the Universe is playing with us.
The question remains: who is a creator? Is the creator the designer of memories who arranges important, intense and authentic situations on the grid of his or her own beliefs? Or perhaps the creator is a flâneur? With these questions in mind, I walked around Polesie – the district of Łódź where I live. Its name in Polish comes from merging the words “after” and “forest”. Here, nature, the urban fabric, people – everything blends differently, more gently. Memories overlap and resonate… In this place, I can see the fusion of the old and the new, I record images and traces. Perhaps I am just a child here, looking for the perfect stick to play with?
The project will be presented in several spots: galleries and local cultural centers. I want to encourage the viewer to walk along the established track. The center of events will be Poleski Ośrodek Sztuki, where the visual part of the project will be available in the form of a site-specific exhibition and photobook. The multimedia event will be enriched by the sounds of “Brash” perform by Aleksandra Chciuk, Mateusz Wysocki, Filip Gabriel Pudło i Bartłomiej Talaga.
