1. Maja Sikorska, Paintings - Memory Portraits

Painter, photographer, graphic and graphic designer. Currently living and working in the more forgiving weather conditions of Cyprus since graduating from The Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow (Poland) in 2008, she has been an active artist with many exhibitions.

"Memory Portraits" is a series of 9 oil paintings painted in 2008 and 2009.

“Composite sketches” or memory portraits are very interesting from a psychological point of view. What we memorize; how we recall things; why we recall this as opposed to that; why this way; was it like this; is it really like that? While painting, I initially concentrated on re-creating a close-to-real image of a human being along with surrounding aura, mood or atmosphere which accompany my idea of that person. What I think is quite natural, while writing about it is indeed trivial. I used my memory and emotional resources, however, with time, memory quickly became an insufficient guide to me. While trying to re-create not only an image kept in my memory but something more complete – a past experience, something ephemeral and without shape – apart from things I remembered and things I knew, I quickly started to utilize something which was always inside of me: a feeling. Then, the art of painting became a contemplation of the experience where form/shape does not determine the objectively defining frames anymore.


2. Anna Maria Citak, Magdalena Piekarz, Telephotography – The am project

Two architects from Poland who graduated from Krakow University of Technology and living in Cyprus since January 2009. Apart from architecture, they’ve been always strangely attracted to photography, seeing it as a form of communication.

The am project is a visual dialogue between Magdalena and Anna. Forty pairs of pictures represent morning moments captured and sent via MMS before everyday rush. Using their phone cameras they created a visual diary of 2 months of their daily lives. Pictures were taken during May and June 2008 in Dublin, Paris, Santander and Krakow.


3. Paweł Dudziński, Butoh performance (modern Japanese dance)

66 year old dancer, sculptor and a founder of "Performer Theater" where butoh has a central role. Butoh is a modern Japanese dance traditionally performed in white body makeup with slow hyper–controlled motion. Learning from such masters as Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno, Dudziński has developed his own way of performing butoh.

Dudzinski, in his artistic research, is without a doubt one of the greatest performers and innovators of modern art. He leaves behind the previous tradition of the dance of darkness "ankoku butoh" and moves towards the light.

from Wikipedia:

Butoh (舞踏, Butō) is the collective name for a diverse range of activities, techniques and motivations for dance, performance, or movement inspired by the Ankoku-Butoh (暗黒舞踏, ankoku butō) movement. It typically involves playful and grotesque imagery, taboo topics, extreme or absurd environments, and is traditionally "performed" in white-body makeup with slow hyper-controlled motion, with or without an audience. But there is no set style, and it may be purely conceptual with no movement at all. Its origins have been attributed to Japanese dance legends Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno.


4. Ewa Musialik, Film – The World Is My Home

10 minutes, Poland, 2008, Colour, Director: Ewa Musialik, Weronika Bien

Architect, interior designer and initiator of MUCK-IN Foundation. Graduated from Krakow University of Technology and The Academy of Fine Arts. She is married to architecture but for many years she has been having an affair with film. One of the results of this is a short documentary she made with Weronika Bień for Polish TV titled ‘The World Is My Home’.

The movie is about Adam Chałupski, a young polish man who was living an ordinary life when one day he decided to change everything and cycle alone to India. The film is a collage of his photographs taken during the trip and an interview with him which was made after his return to Poland.


5. Gabriel Obolewicz – “Cloud Lamp” 200 x 120 x 50 cm

Trained as an architect, his secret passion has always been boxes, containers and things to fill or to empty. One evening, drinking wine from a plastic cup, he was repeatedly blinded by a bare bulb hanging from the ceiling. "Eureka!"- he shouted! And from then on, we can marvel at how this brilliant idea materialized as sculpture and light.

Developing the idea of low-tech and digital fabrication, using simple and commonly found elements like plastic cups, he was interested in what we can design by repeating small elements. In nature there are many such examples, such as a huge shoal of fish deterring predators by creating from itself new intimidating forms. Even looking on how our world is built, matter it’s a structure of atoms. Cloud lamp is a synthesis of physical phenomena to form.


6. Grzegorz Wilk, Film – “Flaneur”

Grzegorz Wilk was born in 1980 in Krakow, and graduated in architecture from Technical University of Krakow in 1982. After spending almost 3 years in Walled Lefkosia from 2007, he is now living with his mother in a one-bedroom apartment and drives a Fiat Panda. He grew up in an area that was considered a suburb of both Krakow and Nowa Huta (which was a brand new socialist city built from scratch in the 1950s in opposition to the conservative, historical atmosphere of old Krakow). This background has formed a human with a specific sense of perception, interested in discreet exploring and observing people in urban spaces using bicycle and camera.

A video project made in January 2008 in collaboration with Adam Chałupski, this was an attempt to experience the space of Ledra street as it was originally created without any political or social obstacles. The aim was to create a flaneur effect by riding on a tricycle with a specially stabilized video camera through the street like there was no disrupting border wall.

from Wikipedia:

Flâneur comes from the French masculine noun which has the basic meanings of "stroller", "lounger", "saunterer", "loafer"—which itself comes from the French verb flâner, which means "to stroll". Charles Baudelaire developed a derived meaning of flâneur—that of "a person who walks the city in order to experience it".

The concept of the flâneur has also become meaningful in architecture and urban planning describing those who are indirectly and unintentionally affected by a particular design they experience only in passing.
