The Adam Mickiewicz Institute

Studio #301

Artist

Tomasz Kowalski

Tomasz Kowalski is part of a movement of young Polish artists embracing a form of “new surrealism.” His interest lay in the discrete hauntological aspects of the everyday and a paranoia towards reality. He expresses this discrete sensibility through a mix of parallel narratives and biography, and often collaborates with his family to make objects using various mediums. In Kowalski’s paintings, drawings, installations and sound pieces, the everyday morphs into the tragicomic, lending his imagery an enigmatic and psychedelic quality.

Tomasz Kowalski has exhibited work at Centre Pompidou, Paris; mumok, Vienna, and Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, among others.

Esther Hovers

In her practice, Esther Hovers investigates how power, politics and control are exercised through urban planning and the use of public space.

She is interested in finding poetic translations for power structures and technological developments.

Esther Hovers has exhibited at GEM, Museum of Contemporary Art, The Hague; C/O Berlin; and the National Gallery in Prague, among others.
