Polish artists Konrad Smoleński and Honza Zamojski present ‘Transparent’, a collaborative exhibition shown through a multimedia installation and performance.
WHEN: Saturday 28 May – Saturday 9 July (performance: 4pm daily)
WHERE: NewBridge Project Space, 12 New Bridge St W, Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear, NE1 8AW
Sabina Sallis, the curator says: Transparent features configurations of objects and humans, humans and architecture and exhibits, institutions and individuals. Within a carefully structured environment and a precisely scripted scenario of live action, humans animate the system regardless of bounds to establishment and restrictions. Humans excite the inanimate world to vibrate, bringing a dynamic that makes the system flexible. By employing simple elements like movement, water, rhythm of actions, order and vibrations – the image of potentiality is created, a potentiality that ultimately remains humane. This event is a snapshot – this abstract form of dissected actions and system becomes an anthropological artefact.

Our local news website Polnews informed us that we have another chance to watch a Polish film in British cinemas. This time it’s a romantic comedy with Maciej Stuhr called “Planeta singli” (“The planet of singles”).
What is it about?
He is one of the top celebrities in the country: a fast-talking TV host, who can joke his way out of any situation. Women want to be with him, men want to be like him. He is looking for a new topic to discuss in his popular talk-show. She is a teacher at a musical school – a timid girl looking for Mr. Perfect on an internet dating site. He will help her realise her potential and teach her how to recognise various types of men for what they are, she will teach him what real life is about. The show will become a huge hit. It seems they are destined to fall in love and be together, but one day she actually does meet Mr. Perfect on the net. (source: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5127398/)
Watching movies helps you learn Polish. It’s useful because you get to hear lots of slang and cool expressions – it’s how people really talk. Also, you should be able to enjoy it, having visual clues to aid your understanding, even if you don’t understand every last thing the characters are saying.
