The exhibition by C.T. Jasper and Joanna Malinowska under the perverse title borrowed from the works of famous anthropologist, Bronisław Malinowski "Sex and repression In Savage Society",  focuses on the issues of personal and collective myths, the need to create bridges between historical truth and the individual desire to place one's own subjectivity in the context of larger and widely understood historical narratives. The main elements of the exhibition are two paintings, pretending to be historical, but are in reality contemporary, depicting Tadeusz Kościuszko's meeting with the leader of the indigenous American nation, the famous strategist, Little Turtle. These are not the only two images - the exhibition features other juxtaposed images, which are almost identical but differ in details. Jasper and Malinowska play with repetitions, exposing the duality of depicted reality.
