P 115-1 U (Bleached coral)
Shefter Gallery in Krakow, 2019



The American corporation Pantone chose "Leaving Coral" for the color of 2019, while almost all the coral reef dies affected by the fading process. That is why site-specific work at the Shefter Gallery was announced as "Color of the year 2020: Bleached Coral", thus paying attention to the ecological crisis in which we find ourselves. “You are what you eat. What you drink and what you breathe. You are a plastic child of capitalism. Pantone, the American corporation which has monopolized the color scale, will once more make reef the color of the year. Not adding, this time, that it was living. And no one will add that the reef was fading.“
Seemingly empty and sterile space is the @WetmeWild Instagram gallery developed in Augmented Reality technology that can be seen by every viewer through a shared application that can be downloaded on the phone.







Hypertextual installation developed on mixed reality smartglasses Microsoft Hololens based on the poem #hylos by Maciej Topolski. The installation was created during a performance at the Cracow Gallery Weekend 2019.

#hylos

I wanted to love you
but i didn’t know how

and did the lubricant help somehow
and what was the result of this activity

since we suffered from a lack of access
to the sources to mingled bodies

you said come with me
but nobody has followed us

nobody sacrifices nothing to commemorate
those events only empty

plastic bottles
