Piotr Wyrzykowski made a name for himself in the 1990s, exploring performance ideas that related to the human body and the possibilities of physiological liberation. In this exhibition, The Pole’s Face the artist continues to expand on these ideas, however the format is slightly different: the artist’s public performances are now 'delegated activities' - the space of his embodiments is no longer “anywhere,” but is instead geographically and culturally defined, and the corporeal body finds a place for itself in another body, thanks to the power of storytelling! Both earlier and new experiences have acquired a narrative and participatory form. The first part of the project, inaugurated at Wrocław Contemporary Museum, is made up of installations and video projections, referring to selected scenes in the interactive plot constructed by Piotr Wyrzykowski. The story is set in the desert, which is often described in literature as a paradoxical space - windy and empty, offering freedom for the spirit and captivity for the body. It can also be thought of as an allegory, a synonym for a world of constant changes, where the identities of loneliness wanderer, and rebels (or artists) reconnect in their long-suffering existence. Alternatively, it can be a pandemic world full of contradictions, a world in which, as Slavoj Žižek describes as “a new way of living will have to be painfully reconstructed.”
