The Cosmicomics exhibition (title taken from a book by Italian writer Italo Calvino) encourages the audience to move into the realm of imagination and spaces that are the figments of fantasy. Entering the exhibition the viewers exceed a certain border and enter the world which is a warehouse of opportunities. Wandering among the works collected here allows us to take a hike in the labyrinth of own imagination and see its enormity.
The inspiration for Agnieszka Polska’s The Calendar was a 1939 calendar found by the artist, which contained pieces of advice and tips on how to run a country farm. In order to illustrate this bucolic vision of life in the country, the artist additionally used photographs published in German newspapers from the 1930s.
