The smell of burned memories

July was the most bloodiest month on the Donbass for long time. ‘Phoney war’ is still on the rise. Being in Kiev, I doesn’t feel anything, just the smell of burned memories. Here time flows differently, as if in another dimension. I want to go back to the Donbass still for a moment, i miss and can’t forgot. It’s hard in this mess, find the hidden meaning other than the

Different side of Ukraine’s war.

July/2015 -Donbass / Kramatorsk / Ukraine. Not only war! The picture is only one part of the whole reportage. Kramatorsk has been occupied by the insurgent troops until 5th of June 2014 for three months. Today, despite the proximity to the main military line, there is relative peacefull and that is where most of the war correspondents has its base while being on the Donbass. In July, I met and

The history of my research in Ukraine come to a full metaphorical circle.

The history of my research in Ukraine come to a full metaphorical circle. I remember when, in April of 2015, during a first trip to Kiev from Warsaw Western Station, I prepared short material about the perception of Polish people about Ukrainians and their economic migration to Poland. It’s beautiful. Now that I have to finish my document, I must look for help in London. Despite the fact that there

The self-proclaimed owner of the word ‘Self’ (polish ‘Jaźń’) as in meaning Philosophy, Poetry, Psychology, Psyche & Culture vol. 2 November of 2015 / Kharkiv, Ukraine. PL_LANG: Pamiętam pierwsze wilgotności umysłu które przełknąłem odrywając końcówkę dźwięczną słowa Jaźń {:Jaźźźńńńńńńńńńńń}, w jednej chwili stając się bohaterem niemożliwej, literackiej miłości od pierwszego spojrzenia. Przebity na przestrzał, sparaliżowany i zawstydzony jego absolutną totalnością. Poczułem się taki nijaki w jego obliczu. Obezwładniony zmysłowością w jaki sposób

GAZ: Social- artistic live act on Zablocie (Cracow)

Two months ago I set up together with a few friends – Cracow artists with operating on Zabłocie – *Constipation Art Group (ang. *GAS; polish *GAZ – GrupaArtystycznego Zaparcia).

Purpose naive, but naivety I could never get rid of. Idea: *Constipation (also known as costiveness

Social and artistic act on Zablocie (district of Cracow)

Zablocie is one of the most interesting parts of Cracow, but unfortunately also fashionable at the time (what worries me). Quite different charater than the rest of Cracow. Historically Zablocie served as industrial, now is a refuge for art studios, artisans and small business, such as design and printing. Unlucky, specificity of this place disappear by corporate policy and real estate development. Old factory buildings are demolished rather than adopted.
