I Wake Up in a Place Where No Human Being Can Live Adam Kozicki
Adam Kozicki’s latest series of paintings deals with experiences that have been driven out and erased from media coverage: barbed wire and walls, unlawful deportations, graveyards of bodies of people who were deemed unworthy of living. Don’t expect painterly realism, for it is powerless in such a situation – rather, a compounded world, impossible-to-imagine from a distanced perspective. Please join us for the opening on Thursday, 16.03.23 at 6 p.m.!
Save As. Jarosław Potoczny
Jarosław Potoczny’s exhibition Save As paints a not-so-optimistic picture of entanglement in a camouflaged system of constraints that shapes our lives through educational, legal, political, economic and cultural mechanisms. There is no alternative here, only a path marked out by the maze engulfing the gallery, through which, in the name of our safety (as well as well-being and freedom), we are kindly guided by an electric fence. The maze seems to be a sarcastic metaphor of social life seen as a field integrated by a “zoo-political” apparatus of pressure.
Curator-led tour: 9 Feb 2023 (Thursday), 6 p.m.
The Darkness of Time – The Light of Space. The work of Konrad Jarodzki

Yesterday’s Dreams Weave the Ruins of Tomorrow’s Temples. Beata Rojek, Sonia Sobiech
Abortion in Poland was, is, and will be. Legally or not, in safe or unsafe conditions, persons with unwanted pregnancies will abort them. The exhibition at 66P grows out of the comic book Opowieści aborcyjne [Abortion stories], which was published in March this year and features real abortion stories of Polish women. We invite you to the opening on 16 September (Saturday), at 6 pm and the tour led by the curator and the artists: 17 September (Saturday), 11 a.m.
One Does Not Become Lyrical Except After a Total Organic Affliction. Nikita Krzyżanowska
It is said that we are only able to rise to the heights of our existence in the face of love or death, and the energy released during these deepest of experiences reveals the whole truth about ourselves. In the decisive moments of life, we all become lyrical. Exhibition finale with artist-curator guided tour: August, 28, at 6:00 PM. You are welcome!
Breaking up the Darkness. Anna Szpakowska-Kujawska
The exhibition ‘Breaking up the Darkness’ shows spatial objects by Anna Szpakowska-Kujawska, an artist known mainly for her paintings. These objects use a language at the intersection of figurativeness and abstraction, combining realistic observation with unbridled imagination. The exhibition is extended until 8.07!
Displacement. Leon Tarasewicz￼
‘Displacement’ is an attempt to look at the sacred through the prism of human negotiations with the spiritual sphere, whose stake is the human need for security and rooting.
