How to travel
– exhibition in Propaganda gallery, Warsaw PL
The second exhibition of Ewa and Jacek Doroszenko in Propaganda is a real untruth or a untrue reality. Through multiplied transformations of elements taken out from the real and virtual worlds, they created a tangible evidence that today’s life, consciousness and subjectivity extend far beyond our senses and travel through the areas of the medialized digital world. How to Travel is an exhibition-narrative composed of works that elude simple categorization and take a debate with the medium in which they were created. Fascinated by modern information technologies and their incredible potential to shape lifestyles, based on images from popular computer games and tourist guides, the artists explore the formal possibilities of digital blurs, distortions, and imperfections.
The preparation of the exhibition was accompanied by a reflection on the function of contemporary photography, which occupies a special place in building illusory visions of the landscape. Deriving from observations of the relationship between the contemporary traveler and the surrounding landscape, which is more often based on compulsive snapshots than on direct experience, artists question the trust in the virtually constructed images. Time changes its direction, and the place of residence gets multiplied and blurred. This is no longer a virtual reality, but real virtuality.

Āmurs – the new album is out now
Years ago, Walter Benjamin noticed in his Arcades Project collection that the path to modernity inevitably leads us through the world of industry, factories, machines, and iron. But is this ‘promised land’ — or, better put, the hell of automation — killing the traditional world of labour and its ancient beauty, alienating the human from nature at the same time? ‘Āmurs’ is an audio-visual project embedded in scientific and technological discoveries, as well as industrialisation. In the ‘Āmurs’ project, the authors emphasise not only the existence and character of the industrial system itself, but primarily the role of individual workers — those who brought the whole system into existence. The project is a part of the industrial festival TehoFest 2018 organised by the Municipal Centre of Culture in Bydgoszcz. It is comprised of three areas: a sound installation presented in the form of an exhibition, an audio-visual concert, and a music album.

The same horizon repeated at every moment of the walk – exhibition at Wozownia Gallery, Toruń PL
When traveling, most people take photographs and use them to communicate a sense of what the experience of being in that place might have been like. However, the acoustic environment can provide a tremendous amount of the sense of place and feeling of a location in a different way than photographs. The project has been produced in a frame of an Art Residency Program at Fundació AAVC Hangar in Barcelona, Spain. More information about the project: Soundreaming
