{Project Room} 2019 Awards Ceremony

Performance One Woman Show by Marta Ziółek

On 31 January 2020, the Project Room Awards Ceremony for 2019 will take place at the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art. A major event, concluding a project aimed at supporting young artists at the beginning of their professional career, the awards ceremony will include a special performance by Marta Ziółek.

Six exhibitions were held in 2019 at the Ujazdowski as part of the Project Room series: by Marta Krześlak, Limanka Fashion House, Jan Moszumański-Kotwica, Wiktoria Walendzik, Horacy Muszyński, and Róża Duda and Michał Soja.

The Project Room is a space for presenting exhibitions by emerging Polish artists. Every year a panel of experts names outstanding individuals, from among whom the Ujazdowski curators pick up the most interesting ones to give them a chance for an institutional debut. As part of the Project Room scheme, the selected artists work with young curators on their first show, all on the same budget and with full production support.

In January 2020, an international jury consisting of Piotr Policht (editor of Szum magazine), Agnieszka Polska (visual artist), Francesco Tenaglia (editor of Mousse Magazine), João Laia (chief curator at Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art), and Jarosław Lubiak (former artistic director at the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art) will select the two most interesting shows from the above ones, awarding the artists with a First Prize of PLN 20,000 and a Second Prize of PLN 10,000. The winners will be announced on Friday, 31 January 2020. The awards ceremony will begin at 8 p.m. at the Auditorium Hall in the Laboratory building. It will be accompanied by a performance piece, One Woman Show, produced specially for the evening by performer and choreographer Marta Ziółek.

One Woman Show starts from the mouth, maw, yap, cakehole, jaw. From the outlet and orifice, entrance and exit, inclusion and exclusion, pleasure and shame. Marta Ziółek animates monsters and sets them in vibration with her body. She looks into her own throat and into your eyes. She embraces corporeal performance practices and lets the female body speak.

One Woman Show is part of a long-term research project based on concrete poetry, the body, voice, and mouth choreography, and is part of Marta Ziółeks performative residency at the Ujazdowski.

  • Admission to the performance by invitation only.
