Tomasz Matuszak, Irena Zieniewicz, HISTERIUM
Histerium is an attempt to face the subject of the resignation syndrome that affects children and young refugees in a situation of permanent limbo and irresolvable living conditions in refugee camps and centers. It is characterized by the fact that people in these places fall into a kind of coma. This situation is presented in a multimedia exhibition by Irena Zieniewicz and juxtaposed with the photographic and video works of Tomasz Matuszak, which refer to the situation of apathy and inability to act in pandemic times. The works of both artists enter into a kind of dialogue, they complement each other and oscillate around the problem of withdrawal, abandonment and lethargy.
Artists: Tomasz Matuszak, Irena Zieniewicz

The exhibition Panopticon is a collection of individual interpretations of the medium of photography, which in this case is only a point of reference to the current activities of the artists and the residential spaces they have developed in the premises at 29 Wschodnia Street The installations and objects are intended as a discreet dialogue between the artists and the areas of the exhibition sites they have chosen. The natural expression of the interiors and the equipment accumulated in them becomes part of the game with art and the artists’ proposals.
