{Project Room} 2019

Young Polish artists at the Ujazdowski

Exhibitions by Marta Krześlak, Dom Mody Limanka, Jan Moszumański-Kotwica, Wiktoria Walendzik, Horacy Muszyński, Róża Duda and Michał Soja will be on view in 2019 at the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art as part of the Project Room series.

In recent years the Project Room has emerged as a showcase for the most promising young Polish artists. Following the success of last years edition, which culminated in the award-giving ceremony, the eighth series kicks off in March. As usual, the participants have been selected from over two hundred candidates suggested by twenty three experts women and men art curators, institution directors, and art-school professors from different cities in Poland.

The programme launches with a project by Marta Krześlak, whose work revolves around dreams, memories, remembered or imaginary landscapes. One such landscape will be presented in the Project Room.

The Łódź-based Dom Mody Limanka fashion collectives practice stretches between fashion and art, and each of their shows is a special event that garners public and media attention. For the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art the artists will make a film.

An artist interested in film, sculpture, and sound, Jan Moszumański-Kotwica will show a new work. Many of his projects deal with contemporary ideologies, their emotional and aesthetic dimensions.

In the autumn, the Project Room will house an exhibition by Wiktoria Walendzik, student of the Szczecin Academy of Art, who mainly does drawings and objects. This will be her first solo show.

Horacy Muszyński works at the interface of film and performance art, experimenting with various pop-cultural figures and motifs. His exhibition at the Project Room will build up on his interest in the film medium.

The years final project will be a new production by the duo Róża Duda and Michał Soja. The artists have their background in multimedia: animation, experimental film, and installation, and the main theme of their works is contemporary human subjectivity and its underlying conflict: dreams of agency versus entanglement in exploitation relationships.

As in previous years, the artists will be working together with young curators: Marcin Polak, Szymon Żydek, Arkadiusz Półtorak, Kuba Borkowicz, Aurelia Nowak, and Marta Lisok. An international jury will select two exhibitions for the Main Prize worth 20,000 zlotys and the Second Prize of 10,000 zlotys. The decision will be announced in January 2020.
