Seeking your own shadow means a process of defining your true identity. Shadows are not possible ithout Light. So, if I have a definition of “me”, then what is the “Light” that allows me to have ashadow? Thanks to what can I see and define my shape? Can that “Light” get inside me and influence my consciousness and way I see myself and the world?

Reporters from the film school in Łódź
“This exhibit was created for the need of the moment. Important moments were captured on film with
faith that our touching the world would meet with a reaction- create a discussion.
Feature reports and photo-reports play an important role in media. Regardless of technical
advancements they will always provide a foundation of knowledge about man and the world around
him. I believe that our students will make that challenge easier.” Prof. Krzystof Hejke
The Infantilizators. Albert Oszek
Graduate of the Art Academy of Krakow. Painter, graphic artist. Creates cultural art involved in presenting man lost in a world of commercialism and consumption. Inspiration is drawn from masks and figures from art of the Pacific Islands as well as anti- globalism ideology.
The theme of the project, “The Infantilizators” comes from the idea of etosu infantylizmu, used by Benjamin R. Barber in his book, “ Consumed”, where “the market ruins children, makes adults infantile and swallows up citizens.” This idea describes contemporary consumers as “shop-aholics”, addicts against their will, manipulated from childhood. “The Infantilizators” is a cycle of acrylic paintings on canvas as well as plaster sculptures depicting small-adult figures addicted to possessing un-necessary
products. The series is an attempt to laugh at human weaknesses by showing in an grotesque manner certain uncontrolled behaviors of man, whose biggest desire is to identify with the wonderful world of advertising.
