The artists use the tools of art to address extremely personal topics, which gain universal significance in the public act of reception. An important motif recurring in the individual works is the action – conscious or not – taken by an individual in order to transform reality and build new relations with others and with oneself. In these actions, an important role is played not only by individuals, their symbolic gestures and performative acts, but also by “rituals of things”, objects treated as active elements, with causative power. The exhibition thus focuses on the psychological mechanisms of taming and reparation. Taken together, the works by Grzeszykowska, Kubiak, and Rajkowska resonate on different levels: psychological, social, cultural, they are a reflection on the identity and experiences of the individual and the functions of contemporary art in the processes of self-awareness and community.
