Exhibition Fitting in Space is presenting works of young Polish artists. The exhibition is dedicated to the notion of space and contemporary artists‘ attempts and investigation into ways in which it can be conceptualized and methods of transferring different spaces into each other. What are the relations between the inside and the outside? Where does gallery space fit in the modern world of art? How do artists translate spatial dimensions, sizes, directions, scales using different means and media? Does art question the spatial logic and its limitations? And if so, how does it help us understand our connections to all different spaces that we live in.

The exhibition will show big variety of works: from photography and film to large scale drawings. Some of the works will be prepared especially for this event and will be site-specific.

An open presentation/discussion with the artists will be held at Zico House on the 26th of February at 6 p.m.
