We are all ashamed of something. From silly things making our faces red, innocent guilty pleasures like passionate binge watching Turkish dramas or believing in horoscopes, to dark traumas or family gossip, the mention of which ends in deathly silence at the table. We hide our shame inside, so that it is not seen by the unannounced guests. It’s important that we don’t have to go back to it ourselves. What if we set ourselves free from the tangled string of social expectations, yanking our thoughts and fantasies to the light of day?
The attic of the tenement house at 5 Mikołajska Street, a previously forgotten, littered vacant lot without glass in the windows, was taken care of and renovated by the MIMS duo – Michał Iwanicki and Mikołaj Sazonov. They turned a neglected space into a studio and a film and photo studio. Today, it is a place of artistic work, connecting various environments, developing artistic skills, and open to all kinds of initiatives and creative meetings.
