About

The second exhibition of Ewa and Jacek Doroszenko in Propaganda is a real untruth or a untrue reality. Through multiplied transformations of elements taken out from the real and virtual worlds, they created a tangible evidence that today's life, consciousness and subjectivity extend far beyond our senses and travel through the areas of the medialized digital world. How to Travel is an exhibition-narrative composed of works that elude simple categorization and take a debate with the medium in which they were created. Fascinated by modern information technologies and their incredible potential to shape lifestyles, based on images from popular computer games and tourist guides, the artists explore the formal possibilities of digital blurs, distortions, and imperfections.

The preparation of the exhibition was accompanied by a reflection on the function of contemporary photography, which occupies a special place in building illusory visions of the landscape. Deriving from observations of the relationship between the contemporary traveler and the surrounding landscape, which is more often based on compulsive snapshots than on direct experience, artists question the trust in the virtually constructed images. Time changes its direction, and the place of residence gets multiplied and blurred. This is no longer a virtual reality, but real virtuality.
