Jaś Domicz, / Mummy, Daddy and Me / 2010 / PL / 01’43”
From the program of Biennale WRO Alternative Now 2011. Recording of an artistic action. Family relations and the joy of being together represented by a revolving door.
Agata Kus / Mother / 2012 / PL / 9’14”
Documentation of an installation exhibited at the WRO Biennale Pioneering Values 2013 at the Rings of Saturn exhibition in the Ballestrem’s Palace in Wrocław. On difficult relationship between the child and his or her mother, interdependence, and extreme emotions that this relationship raises. Hatred mixed with love and rebellion against the duplication of stereotypes and parental behaviour are just some of the associations that this work calls. “Classic” arrangement of mother and “child” — here shown in form of a wild cat — refers to religious iconography. To hurt each other (painful scratching and moaning opposed to oppression) represents difficult love (conscious or not) that most of us have with mothers.

Justyna Misiuk / RGB LOOKBOOK / 2013 / PL / 4’33”
A documentation of an installation exhibited at the WRO Pioneering Values 2013 in the Renoma Department Store. Five—channel video installation. RGB is one of the colour models, and the popular lookbooks are used to endorse lifestyles and fashionable looks. Virtual carnivality is their way to accumulate everyday life stripped of its ordinary nature. The girls dressed in red, green, and blue are presenting an image of the contemporary carnivalism, turning it into a peculiar diary written in a language of concrete-sensual symbols characteristic to video blogs and youtube channels and found in everyday life.

Maria Stożek / Territories / 2013 / PL / 6′
