About the exhibition

Having moved to the capital, Kamil is looking for a job, wanting to afford a bit of luxury in the form of not falling behind with rent and eating regular meals. Driven by his old boyhood fascination, as well as his eco-ambitions as a vegan, he decides to take a job as a waste collector.

Taking a job as a dustbin man had no artistic motive. Kamil simply went to work. His day was characterised by: getting up at three in the morning, driving for hours in the car, lugging heavy containers and being exposed to unexpected sparring with rats. But, of course, there is more to life than work. With the remnants of his physical and mental strength, Kamil was dating on Tinder and learning the basics of jazz on the clarinet.

In the recycling-multimedia exhibition, Kamil Janczewski retrospectively ruminates on the collected experiences of several months of being a waste collector. The world he would like to clean up is, above all, his life.
