Plants, animals, fungi, inanimate nature, objects and artificial intelligence are powerful, organized worlds. Some tolerate humanity leniently, others influence our behavior through specialized means of psychomanipulation. – Joanna Rzepka-Dziedzic says – There are also those who treat us as an irritating pest, which the Earth has just decided to shake off culturally.
During the exhibition Men Like Gods, the OP ENHEIM gallery space will be filled with exceptional works. Each of them in its own way will make us feel uncomfortable and disturb anthropocentric perspective. The worlds we enter are sometimes completely without human presence, and the forces that reign in them affect people more than they do. The artists invited to the exhibition will shake our faith in the undivided reign of the homo sapiens kind. The works of Angelika Markul, Mikołaj Szpaczynski and Justyna Mędral will be presented. The works of Maciej Cholewa and Przemysław Branas will be created especially for the needs of the exhibition.
As part of the events accompanying the TIFF Festival, they will take place: – Evening of inhumane stories, a meeting with artists – 4.09, 7.00 p.m. – Guided tour with Joanna Rzepka-Dziedzic, curator of the exhibition – 7.09, 2 p.m. – Guided tour after the exhibition – 17.09, 6.00 p.m.
Men Like Gods is the exhibition of the Main Programme of the 9th International Photography Festival TIFF Festival.
