Through the Eyes of the Cyber Generation

Tamagotchi Generation Diaries is an exhibition of artwork by young Polish artists, on display at Warsaw's Klimy Bocheńskiej Gallery until July 16.

The exhibition constitutes something of a subjective chronicle of the world around us as well as a running commentary on the uncertainties of human identity.

It centers on the Tamagotchi, an electronic toy that was particularly popular in the late 1990s and that serves as a symbol of the so-called cyber generation. To those who owned one, the Tamagotchi represented temporariness, transition, care and mourning-qualities that can be said to form an algorithm of human existence. The artwork exhibited demonstrates how young artists have interpreted that algorithm in a variety of different ways.

On display are works by artists including Agata Agatowska, Marek Ejsmond-¦lusarczyk, Justyna Kabala, Tomasz Kopcewicz, Michał Kotula, Agnieszka Łakoma, Julita Malinowska, Tomasz Musiał, Joanna Pawlik, Wojciech Skrzypiec, Paweł Szczerepa, and Urszula ¦liz.
