The Walls Have Ears

The Walls Have Ears exhibition was realized together with Karolina Mełnicka and
Stachu Szumski at Trafostacja Sztuki in Szczecin.

List of works:
Get down, get down little Henry Lee and stay all night with me, laser cut aluminum, steel, digital print on silk, soil, electricity cables, led lights, 2019
Ectoplasmats, oak wood, pvc, silk, linen, laser cut aluminum, steel, 2019
Growl, aluminum, 2019

The series of objects introduce the story of Henry, the ghost that haunts the Trafostacja gallery building and is well known to all its employees. The portal standing in the black soil, creeping metal insects and the tongues growing on the walls create the scenery for the narrative about the institution’s spectres. The eclectic works, inspired by Gothic but also Art Nouveau shapes, refer to the sphere of imagination, subconsciously growing anxieties and myths. Parallel worlds evoke their presence in the contemporaneity, which inevitably approach
the New Middle Ages - where paranormal explanations come with help in translating or blurring the reality.
