PIANA Gallery, Warsaw


The exhibition by Szymon Kobylarz, Kamil Kukla and Michal Zawada offers a condensed reflection on the paradoxes of contemporary concepts of masculinity and its relationship with nature.

In the concepts of Norbert Elias and Klaus Theweleit, armor is the boundary separating the modern male individuality from the threatening exterior.
