Fondazione Pastificio Cerere hosts an exhibition entitled The Dream of Warsaw organised in partnership with the Polish Institute of Rome, curated by Gabi Scardi.
The exhibition is part of "In Poland, where? A series of exhibitions focusing on the Polish contemporary art scene". The title The Dream of Warsaw is a reference to a song by Czeslaw Niemen and to the 2005 film by Artur Zmijewski, a tribute to architect Oskar Hansen.
The central theme of the exhibition is reflection on the city of Warsaw and its transformations through the works of 10 Polish artists.
The work of art becomes a medium for exploring the reality of a complex, fragmented, contradictory city with a high potential for transformation, as in the first work, Oxygenator by Joanna Rajkowska, which opens the exhibition.
The Oxygenator is a little lake in an unresolved corner of the city which has given new meaning to space, making it into a temporary oasis, a meeting point and a place for socialising.
