Vernissage: Thursday, 1 February, 5 pm


 The exhibition of Paulina Poczęta consists of works created in the last few years. The works include small self-portraits, drawings and collages from the series A Touch of Humanity, Soap Bubble Stains and other works arranged in small series. The artist uses found objects - analogue or digital devices, household appliances which are broken, worn out, or no longer functioning. Paulina Poczęta uses art to restore their value and give them a second life. In her work, based largely on self-portrait, she raises the themes of loneliness, memory and reminiscences.

"My work is a struggle with daily routine. It involves searching, photographing, comparing and processing existing "realities" in the projections of their own visual sentiments, discovering the micro-senses and senselessness in myself and my immediate environment.

I am an art gatherer, collecting worn out socks, jotting down snippets of conversations, drawing, or to wax lyrical, painting - especially myself. I play a visual cootie catcher, trying to be attentive to all those unnecessary things that go unnoticed."

I am a strange collector of events and emotions.                                                                                                           Paulina Poczęta
