Pilichowski-Ragno has an eye for surreal juxtapositions. It penetrates the zone that Georges Peretz called l’infraordinaire, the not exactly ordinary. This is the world that secretly emerges from the ordinary, which is connected to it by an invisible thread. But which does not want to stay in the ordinary. Therefore, the photographs we see shake our sense of the obvious. Something appears in them that according to common sense should not happen. But it does. And now we can’t say we haven’t seen it… prof. dr hab. Darius Czaja


Galeria 2 Okna is a young, dynamically growing gallery of modern art placed in the district of Kazimierz, by a cafe with the same name. The gallery took Maria Jarema, a 20th century’s avant garde artist, as its ideological patron. Besides exhibitions 2 Okna also organizes concerts, discussions and workshops. The Gallery is supported by Dwie Galicje Foundation. In the cafe, besides multiple reproductions of Maria Jarema’s works, guests can see a rather large mural – an enlarged copy of one of her graphics. Another mural, made by Group 13 and inspired by Jarema’s works, can be seen in the garden.
