Optics, picture, vision. The compulsion of looking, the (im)possibility of seeing, and the eye to get under somebody else’s skin. Through human and animal corporeality, the artist creates a space where the eye is guided by its own logic, affectively searching for contact. POV is a story about the distance between the eye and the “I,” where intimate fantasies mix with brutal imagery, revealing the underside of reality.
POV has been produced specially for the Project Room as part of a series of presentations of young Polish artists, following shows this season by Kornelia Dzikowska, Jan Baszak, Adelina Cimochowicz, Piotr Bruch, and Sebastian Sebulec.
