Existential Adventure in Antarctica

The Sixth Continent, a new exhibition at the Zachęta art gallery, features multimedia projects by Anna Molska, a young Polish artist who has won the admiration of curators from New York and British galleries. Working on the exhibition, Molska was inspired by a Polish scientific expedition to Antarctica in the 1950s. Among the scientists who traveled to the mysterious and unexplored continent was Molska’s grandfather Janusz Molski, a physics professor.

Molska spent months tracking down materials for the project, such as accounts of the trip given by other explorers, photographs, slides, drawings and clips from documentaries. The research inspired her to come up with her own vision of people confronted with the hostile Antarctic environment.

Molska ponders the way people give meaning to their existence by choosing seemingly irrational and unnatural challenges. She tries to figure out what makes different people get together and embark on such extreme voyages.
