»To be truly radical is to make hope possible, rather than despair convincing.« Raymond Williams 1989

Creating collaborative situations, processes and actions underpins Alicja Rogalska’s artistic practice. She often works with people who live in precarious economic and political contexts, activists and researchers: migrant workers, people who have been stripped of their citizenship, care workers, street musicians, asylum seekers trained as lawyers, young farmers, folk singing groups or feminist and queer activists. What emerges from these interactions are temporary collectives formed on the basis of a shared life situation, class, political beliefs or a commitment to social change. The videos, images and objects created through the collective processes foreground moments of agency, rebellion and solidarity. Questioning the logic of capitalism, the works attempt to carve a space for imagining other, more just possibilities.

Curated by Aneta Rostkowska, »From Ground to Horizon« sits within an immersive, landscape-like exhibition design by Mateusz Okoński.
