Memory, Facts and Fiction

“In Memory,” an installation by Polish visual artist and photographer Michał Martychowiec, on show at the Ujazdowski Castle Center for Contemporary Art, explores the role which imagination and memory play in recollections of past events.

Martychowiec, 26, studied fine arts at the prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. He has since lived and worked in London and Berlin. His work includes series of photographs, videos, drawings and multimedia projects. Interested in opera, Martychowiec has also produced art installations for the Wielki Theater in Poznań and the National Opera in Seoul, South Korea. Martychowiec seeks inspiration in early art and the philosophy and art of the Far East.

The “In Memory” installation consists of a slide show and large photographs of a landscape. Abstract images in the slide show form a mosaic of geometrical, colorful spots, which hints at how the human mind recalls different moments in time. Since none of those are detailed images, a lot is left to the imagination and is open to interpretation, to the point where facts can no longer be separated from fiction.

Until Aug. 25
Center for Contemporary Art; 2 Jazdów St., Warsaw
