Róża Duda and Michał Soja in the Krakauer Haus in Nurnberg.
Róża Duda and Michał Soja, last year’s graduates of the Cracow Academy of Fine Arts, are the most promising Polish artistic duo, whose works have already been appreciated multiple times in Poland and abroad.
In their creations, they very consciously construct a modern human being, for whom the time, divided into past and future stops existing while it turns into a stream of stimuli and events, experienced here and now. The artists are mostly interested in the state of contemporary subjectivity suspended between individual dreams and aiming for self-sustainability, and collective coexistence based on the relation of power and strength. This identity becomes a construct built from many different, sometimes even contradicting aspects of the globalized world deprived of a universal pattern. The project shows this complicated and ambiguous reality in which the now becomes nothing more than modifying the past events, or reprogramming them to be more precise.
Zaubenberg is a project created by Róża Duda and Michał Soja in the space of the Krakauer Haus in Nurnberg. It takes place as a part of and in the same time as Cracow ArtWeek, giving the citizens of Nurnberg a chance to participate in this event and to see, for the first time, works created by this young duo. Both new and older creations which, for just a few days, will change the Krakauer Haus into an Internet-like space, hung outside of a particular time and space.
