Hiccup

Solo exhibition, Re Gallery, MOCAK, Cracow,PL, 2015

The theme addressed by the installation – which includes photography, video and objects – goes back to the rituals created by the artist. Their aim is to map intimate and public spaces. It is those rituals that determine his being an artist who engages with his own memory and the memory of the place as he works around process and event.

Hiccups are a persistent pathological syndrome occurring as a rhythmic jolt. They are usually caused by sudden over living. This is also a neurotic syndrome, an involuntary bodily re ex appearing unexpectedly and leaving similarly unexpectedly. The word itself is often used in Polish as a metaphor for constant returns of something or to something, short-lived repetitive durations and their sudden dissolutions.
