Broniewski, 2004
oil on canvas, 190 x 180 cm

A portrait of Władysław Broniewski (1897-1962), an eminent Polish communist poet, whose biography was full of twists and turns and tragic. The painting was based on a propagandist photography from the end of the 1950's and beginning of 1960's. It depicts the poet on a backdrop of his beloved Mazovian landscape. At that time, Broniewski was at the peak of his popularity as the communist government's favorite. Also, his weakness for alcohol was being more and more visible. The painting was presented in Steadelijk Museum in Amsterdam and in Raster as a part of the "Broniewski" project.

Map Trap, 2004
site-specific installation: wall drawing made of fuse, school map of Poland, puppet of president G.W. Bush

Project planned specifically for the unique Raster space. The "Map Trap" protagonists are the school map of Poland and President G.W. Bush - the villain of international politics. The story interweaves thanks to a wall drawing made of fuse in a shape of huge letter "A" in cowboy shoes. When the fuse was lit, the flame circled the whole room and died down on the other side of the map of Poland. Separately from all this, the flammable puppet of G.W. Bush was lying deserted in twilight among old planks boards and gallery debris.
