Piotr Blamowski’s exhibitions are presented in two galleries at MOCAK. In Alfa Gallery, utilitarian and decorative objects are exhibited, including an eclectic bench, a rosary praying game, a newspaper rack in Art Déco style and a framed trophy.

Meanwhile, in Beta Gallery, a collection of short art films by the design-generation group is shown. The films evoke places in the cultural imagination that have been grafted onto us. They are daring, eccentric and humorous; often, cruel, terrifying and obscene, too. The dynamic of the action is emphasised by the edgy editing, reminiscent of TV adverts. The soundtrack for each film has been carefully selected.

Obsessive Scenes exhibition curator: Maria Anna Potocka
