Jacek Doroszenko, Ewa Doroszenko - How to travel, Propaganda gallery

How to travel

Jacek Doroszenko & Ewa Doroszenko
Propaganda gallery, Foksal 11/1, Warszawa PL
From 16th March to 19th May, 2019

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.

Mammoth Ulthana - Āmurs

Āmurs

CD digipak, digital, streaming | total: 50:00
+ audiovisual performance
MCK, PL | 2018

Āmurs is an audio-visual project embedded in scientific and technological discoveries, as well as industrialisation. Its inspiration, production and realisation is directly entwined with the FOD factory in Bydgoszcz, Poland. FOD — the oldest Polish company of its kind — has produced machines since 1865, thus providing a unique example of civilisation’s progress over that period. Such progress has an essential influence on huge cultural and civilisational changes, such as urbanisation, the decrease in an individual’s labour value, the diminished significance of ‘craftsmen’, and broad changes in the social structure. 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 comprised of three areas: a sound installation presented in the form of an exhibition, an audio-visual concert, and a music album.

Ewa Doroszenko i Jacek Doroszenko - Rezydenci, Warsaw Gallery Weekend 2017 / Galeria Propaganda / exhibition view 07

Natural potential

Full HD video | 06:50 | stereo | grayscale | 2017

The project has been produced within the Artist-in-Residence programme at KKKC in Klaipeda LT, 2017.

The idea of video is based on the study of the relationship between natural sounds and man-made sounds that interfere with the natural sound environment. During his residency in the forests surrounding Klaipeda, the artist installed a series of small objects, emitting sounds similar to the sound of insects, wind, sea and other natural sound phenomena, but all of them were composed with the use of digital instruments. Thus, they became a disturbance, brought by man into the natural sound aura. The objects were hidden in a natural space, and the people passing them were unable to distinguish the sounds of nature from the sounds of the installation. In his project, the artist takes up the subject of people’s shared responsibility for the sound environment and the need to look for solutions to noise issues. The video work evokes situations arranged during the residency and illustrates the comparison of sound emission with areas where noise emission problems occur.

Jacek Doroszenko - Tonopolis, interactive installation, screen 1

Tonopolis

Application, music | 2011
Co artists: Ewa Doroszenko, Rafał Kołacki

The Tonopolis is an interactive Internet presentation, that takes the form of an audio-visual trip around Torun, reflects the sonic nature of the city. It serves as an inspiration and background for several stories presented as linear animations. Ewa Doroszenko’s photographs, which constitute the core, directly show the places conjured up by the sounds. Each scene has its own individual aesthetic and narrative character, built up with the use of formal means chosen individually for every place. The internet site is in a close relationship with the music album of the same title.

Aesthetic Interface for Memory

Interactive live application | various dimensions | 2008

Aesthetic Interface for Memory is based on the assumption that the viewer will reflect on two aspects of perception: communion with the unknown and the vector of memory that is trying to handle the process of reality reconstruction. With the use of an author-designed software, the artist creates graphic mix live, which complets the work. The application includes audio recordings assigned to particular objects and a music layer, created especially for the project. The drawing project refers to the fact that memory reconstructs reality in many different manners. The animation structure is based on a simplified pattern. The final multimedia shape of the work was created with five basic imaging techniques: bringing the object to the foreground (analogous to memory planting up ideas or forwarding), illumination (enlightenment, inspiration), uncovering with a mask (the way memorised facts conjure up associations), signs (the section of memory controlling language) and swapping (deduction).
