The exhibition focuses on the issues of migration, mobile dwellings, trafficking and exile. Furthermore, the show discusses displacement within artworks: transmission of data, breaking the structures of communication, exchange of codes. The dominant motives will be: phantom islands, shifting horizons, the Mediterranean as a borderline between death and survival,
home and exile. As a visual motto of the exhibition and an inspiration we propose a painting by Polish modernist painter Jadwiga Maziarska entitled Transfert (1980) from the Galeria Studio collection [above], which could be perceived as a representation of a message: biological, linguistic, as well as artistic. The exhibition takes place on two levels of the Galeria Studio housed by the Palace of Culture and Science and forming part of the Studio Theatre in Warsaw.
The exhibition features also a research project on the iconography of migration by Paweł Mościcki, and works from the Galeria Studio collection by Koji Kamoji, Jadwiga Maziarska, Erna Rosenstein. The collateral programme will include meetings/lectures with individuals and groups involved into research on the topic of migration.
