“I’m From Here”
Krzysiek Orłowski

15.7 – 3.9.2016

Krzysiek Orłowski tells a story about locality and familiarity. It is a story about people and a city which, irrespectively of the actual (non-)presence of our bodies in the place of birth or hometown, become petrified as a phantasmatic sphere of memories, representations and emotions. The title of the exhibition – “I’m From Here”, not from “there” – emphasises the position of the artist in the symbolic space-time. These words could only be uttered by an “insider” who is not casting a glance from afar. There is no distance here, no impression of voyeurism or ethnographic registration. Orłowski simply feels at home, among his people.
