Zmijewski and me (work in progress)


Work in progress
Video material, drawings, notes

In 2017 I was artist-in-residence at Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art in Warsaw. There, I spent two months inside the famous and enigmatic Kowalnia workshop at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, and its spin-offs led by Kowalnia-alumni Artur Żmijewski and Paweł Althamer.

As Kowalski and me, Zmijewski and me is a work-in-progress that shares my experiences there. Above are a selection screenshots from video documentation material recorded during or related to my stays in RYTUAL, a series of meetings proposed by Artur Żmijewski.

Many thanks to professor Grzegorz Kowalski, Łukasz Kosela, Tomáš Rafa, Artur Żmijewski, Paweł Althamer, Anna Czaban, Karina Beumer, all students of RYTUAL, Kowalnia and many more.

My stay at Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art was made possible by the Mondriaan Fund and the City of Warsaw. Me continuing working on my findings is supported by LAPS | Research Institute for Art and Public Space.
