As part of Art Weekend Aarhus, Galleri Image hosted a panel discussion between four Polish video and installation artist, who are featured in the exhibition series Territories in the Demo Room at the gallery, together with the curator of the exhibition series, Aleksandra Księżopolska.

Territories is not about presenting a regional survey of Polish art scene. It is rather a curatorial inquiry into places, spaces and relationships. The focus here is to concentrate on the very essence of imaginary spaces, created by the artists, offering few dimensional layers for interpretation. Territories will make an attempt at identifying the existential position of human beings in an ultra-modern world where spaces are prone to ruptures and detachments. The process of identifying and re-identifying social and cultural relationships is a recurring feature in most of the works selected for the exhibition series.

The featured artists are Dominik Lejman, Adam Witkowski, Iwo Rutkiewicz, and Kaja Dobrowolska. This selection aims at highlighting a group of artists that offers an analytical perspective on the contemporary paradigm of non-places, identifies the ‘gaps’ and risks as well as initiates a discursive dialogue. The aesthetic diversity of the works will refer to personal organization of systems and rules related to perceiving contemporaneity. The thread that connects all of the artists’ works relates to an almost ritualistic – mantric process of building a mandala. Delicate and fragile in its form. The five artists’ works are meditative and self- reflective.

Time & Place: May 31st at 1:30 - 2:30 PM at Galleri Image
The event will be in English.
