Ewa Doroszenko, Jacek Doroszenko. Parallele Schwingungen | Polnisches Institut Düsseldorf
The visual form of all the works shown in the exhibition results directly from their sonic layer. Through this chronological order of their artistic work, Ewa and Jacek Doroszenko draw attention to the need to give auditory perception an appropriate place in the predominantly visual contemporary culture. In the latest video, Jacek Doroszenko works with minimalist objects that play a four-part piece like traditional instruments, reminiscent of Witold Lutosławski’s “Jeux Vénitiens”. Other works by the artist are video scores in which the movement of the filmed figure determines the character of the musical composition played. Ewa Doroszenko confronts the acoustic environment through more remote references by translating selected sound events into a synthetic visual language. With the help of abstract black-and-white structures, the artist captures the sound spreading in time and space in a static form. More information at https://instytutpolski.pl/duesseldorf

Partytura nowych gestów | Metascore of new gestures
The exhibition entitled Metascore of New Gestures is a review of joint artistic experiments carried out by Ewa and Jacek Doroszenko in 2016–2022. Wrocław Contemporary Museum presents sound installations, video works and a series of graphics on paper. The duo’s creative work stems from their fascination with the relations between sound, space and visuality. In this triad, acoustic phenomena constitute the basis for artistic work, but the space that determines the entire process is equally important, providing the activities with a performative aspect.

Ewa Doroszenko, Jacek Doroszenko
In their works, Ewa and Jacek examine how digital images and the latest technologies mediate perception of the natural world. Fascinated by modern information tools and their massive potential for shaping our ways of life, the artists seek to capture the atmosphere of a simultaneously physical and virtual present tense. Studying the textures of landscapes and surfaces, natural and simulated, they emphasise the role of photography in navigating today’s world.
Ewa Doroszenko and Jacek Doroszenko’s audiovisual project consists of video and photography works created as part of Artist-in-Residence programs in Greece, Lithuania, and Portugal. More at https://photomonth.com

Enklawa at Propaganda gallery, Warsaw
Jacek Doroszenko and Ewa Doroszenko have been invited to the Enklawa (Enclave) at the Propaganda Gallery, which opened its doors to artists who have to create art, meditate and fulfill themselves through every other form of expression. The artists are working on a new video project based on the experimental use of stage design elements – objects that act as sound triggers. The final video work will consist of two simultaneous projections remaining in an aleatoric dialogue.

How to travel
– exhibition in Propaganda gallery, Warsaw
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.

Exgirlfriend Gallery is transformed into the place where art directly catalyses the transition from synthetic images and digital sounds to painting or graphical music notations.

– 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 labor 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 industrialization. In the ‘Āmurs’ project, the authors emphasize 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 organized 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 exhibition is made up of works created over the course of residencies in Spain, Norway, Lithuania, and Warsaw, in the cellar of the building at ul. Foksal 11, in the months leading up to Warsaw Gallery Weekend. For Ewa and Jacek Doroszenko, a well-fitted studio isn’t a privileged place of creative work or a point-of-reference.
