Tell us more about your collection!
“HYPERREAL” is a translation of my memories and experiences – as I remember them perhaps falsely – of growing up in post-communist Poland.
The persistent remnants (both physical and psychological) of bygone times that were suddenly of no use, lingered to create some type of kitschy supra-reality that remained stuck in a loop of its own existence. But it had its own specific beat that I wanted to convey through this collection.
I’d like to thank my parents for all those years of their support and belief in my ‘experiments’.
For all people that helped me on this journey:
