An idea hidden in things

Buildings, edifices, objects. Anchored in our memory, in our thinking about cities, outskirts, in images of different journeys, in perception of a rural road, a sea shore, a terrace, a backyard. The roughness of concrete, the smell of timber, the vermillion of brick, the colour of neon. A house, a palace, a factory, a station. An arbour in the park, a gateway, a swimming pool, a springboard, a gasoline station. Light falling onto the floor, walls, the asphalt of the road. Encoded views, landscapes complemented with architecture.

An idea hidden in things

Radek Zielonka - an invader from Łódź

A great emergence. After his studies in Warsaw and numerous travels Zielonka came back to his hometown. On the distant outskirts, in the house whose windows overlook a mobile network tower, he is trying to keep his distance from the world.

His only regret is that there is no river in Łódź. A city without a river is incomplete, so he gets away to Warsaw with its Vistula River and its parties. In his secluded home he leads the life of a reclusive artist. ‘Painting isn’t easy,’ he says. ‘Sometimes you need to get drunk with the painting, soldier on until the small hours.’
