Filipka Rutkowska

Agata Słowak

As part of this year's edition of Hotel Warszawa Art Fair, we invite you to visit room 118, where Filipka Rutkowska will present her exhibition "different figures in the same character" with the guest participation of Agata Slowak.

Filipka will present her latest performance right in the room on Saturday and Sunday from 5 - 7 pm.

I couldn't help but wonder if it was me who was so fast, or if it was perhaps the world that had been standing still for decades. I'm not referring here, of course, to such issues as technology or geopolitics - these, as befits fields traditionally shaped by men, have been running at a duly rapid pace. On the other hand, when it comes to more fundamental issues, where the right to use one's own voice is at stake, change always looks different for some reason. There are, admittedly, moments of particular intensity, such as the march of colorful crowd through gray socialist realist architecture, or the occasional recognition by a country that two women can raise children together, but the idea that every vote counts the same is still as abstract to most people as saying that Portugal will turn into Alaska. Though overall, I don't know if that's still a valid metaphor. But no matter where and in what climate we co-create reality one thing is clear - everyone is trying to carve it to fit their own mold. No matter how much force is put into it, one thing is certain - everyone has a say in what the great social sculpture looks like.
