It is the sixth station of Via Dolorosa based on liquefaction of the Infiltron via the former chain of the BWA (Bureau of Art Exhibitions) galleries. This time it was prepared especially for Galeria Labirynt in Lublin.

The installation’s compounds are three combined projection layers which result in a triple synchronic video. The content refers to the themes of the country side demonology, Polish martyrdom and the Holocaust which took place in the Lublin region. The footage was shot during the Reconnaissance we conducted on the territory of the Lublin Voivodship in 2013.

The concept of the exhibition is based on the concept of voyeuristic vampirism we have invented ourselves. Using far from traditional, wide range of meaning within these categories, we make them marge in this way creating our own interpretative code. We reach this guided by the principle of aesthetic-intellectual altruism which is the main feature of our voyeuristic vampirism. The appropriation of the original image and text to generate new expression is of an idealistic donational alterocentric character. Thus charity becomes a unique, indefeasible quality of the reality – art – viewer – post-reality relation, activated during the show. The title of this installation also refers to the action cycle we have run for numerous years entitled Infiltron.
