One may ask – why market robbery? Anyone who has watched “Money Heist” knows there is more to robbery. A bank robbery, or – in this case – a market one, is a dream about breaking out of pathological everyday life, it is a manifesto of freedom and a rebellion against capitalism. “The idea of ‘Market Robbery’ is an unfulfilled dream for me to experience reality in the way we expect. It is the idea of extreme action, and the key here is what it represents, not just the fact that we make it real. ‘Market robbery’ is for me a model of the attitude that I strive for, but which does not leave the sphere of my dreams. I am fascinated by the unrestricted freedom and opposition to the imposed restrictions that are associated with entering the criminal path. However, I do not have negative energy in me, and I do not want to hurt anyone. I just want to eat a fresh tomato,” says Franek.

It will be the second instalment of “Market Robbery”. The first one, in the Ul Gallery, took place in a virtual space with the use of an avatar. It was accompanied by a digital audience made of photos of the event’s participants. The exhibition at Galeri Labirynt will be an attempt to materialise digital reality, we will also hear a new version of the song “Market Robbery”.
