THE ARTIST

I do things like artists do, like stuff, like paintings – images, like things – objects, more or less nice. People buy it hanging on the wall, or not I dont know. Museums buy it and keep it in a basements.

Foolishness for Christ (Greek: διά Χριστόν σαλότητα, Church Slavonic: оуродъ, юродъ) refers to behavior such as giving up all one’s worldly possessions upon joining a monastic order, or deliberately flouting society’s conventions to serve a religious purpose–particularly of Christianity. Such individuals have historically been known as both „holy fools” and „blessed fools”. The term „fool” connotes what is perceived as feeblemindedness, and „blessed” or „holy” refers to innocence in the eyes of God.

Who you are...

Who you are...

Kto ty jesteś… / Who you are… this are the firs words of the rhyme for children at the primary shool in Poland. „Who you are” project centers on a subject of Polish national identity. Discussion over the problem of the shape of the patriotism, national identity and its practices electrifies both the public and the media. Expansion and polarization of the conflict between nationalism and internationalism have left scarcely any room for those who do not identify themselves with any of extreme attitudes. Drogowski refutes this discussion contesting its extremist nature and encourages us both to take a part in it, and to take the discussion itself to a whole different level.

Every day kitschy vinyl toys, with different shapes and colors (golden pigs, tomatoes, eggs, skulls), are splatting by a trained Indian throw of all Venice sidewalks, promenades and boulevards. The entire city is occupied. Each vendor sets out a paperboard for the product presentation and a kit of wrapped colored balls for sale, 3 euros per item. In this work I am asking – What is the role of the artist?

Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw has organized an event entitled „Dary dla ukrainy”- Gifts for Ukraine with the purpose of donating works by Polish artists to a museum in Ukraine in support for a country suffering Russian military aggression. When I start to think what kind of artwork can be proper for this exalted movement, I considered is there any of art work needed. You know, people are dying there, and then they receive package with an artwork made by some artists from Poland… Here is the question about the role of art in the face of war. And also the question – What is more valuable, the individual person or the symbol? I have developed a series of works using materials useful for survival, such as blankets, wood, soap and canned food. Use of materials in accordance with their original purpose will erase national symbols and break the symbolic value of the work. The works have never been sent to Ukraine.
