Fresh From Poland x FotoBzik x Paper Beats Rock present:

UFO VISUAL LAB

Unidentified Flying Objects and extraterrestrials have been the themes appearing regularly in the mainstream media and science discussions for many years. We keep asking questions: why people want to believe? How come so many of us 'know', how the flying saucers or aliens look like, although no one has ever proved they exist? Why the idea of UFO continuously inspires artists to produce stories, movies and artworks about it?

 

 

 



UFO Visual Lab project will include:

- Main exhibition, which explores artistic vision of 10 contemporary artists and collectives: Franek Ammer, Gosia Ćwiech Artur, Gołębiowski, the TBX Group (Paweł Bagiński, Miłosz Cirocki, Wojtek Skrzypczyński), Kamil #2, Anna Kieblesz, Karol Liver, Michał Matejko, Kaja Rata, and Katarzyna Zolich;
- Laboratory - research space, including timeline and a library;
- ‘Alternative Facts’ - zine publication prepared by Katarzyna Legendź and Kasia Zolich from Paper Beats Rock;
- #SHOWMEYOURUFO - selected works from our online research (
showmeyourufo.tumblr.com);
- ‘Wall of Evidence’ - curatorial project by Iza Zdziebko and FotoBzik association;
- ‘Disclosure’ - curatorial project by Karol Liver from Prism Photo Magazine.

Join us in this fascinating research of the history of UFO mythology and visual representation of flying saucers and extraterrestrial beings in media & pop culture.

CA-MOU-FLAGE

 

The art that can’t be seen. Obviously, it doesn’t mean it does not exist! A technique of mimicry or, as in this case, of camouflage is effective insofar as it allows infiltrating multifarious spaces, niches and circumstances. After all, art, hybrid in its nature, should stand above divisions, milieus, fields and regimes. It should appear and disappear, while maintaining a distance from the story of the infamous emperor’s clothes. The key figure is in this case the figure of the author, who might be helpful in the process of interpretation, or with childlike glee throw cold water on the crowd: Is this art? I can’t see it.

This year’s Grey House Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute Prize finalist exhibition extends along the axes of two concepts: the artist vs. society and nature vs. culture. Their composition in antagonistic juxtaposition will assist not only an analysis of the art presented at the exhibition, but, first of all, of the figure of the artist behind it: a staffage, a villain, a real and surreal observer, a trickster. Here’s the artist – what about society? Well, everyone knows – society is unkind.
