The pace of life and the dynamic growth of the population intensify the cultivation of human egocentrism. Changes faster than humanity is able to bear pave the way towards the wall, annihilation spilled in the gold of the era, and elementary feelings are replaced by a morbid desire for independence, which is the cause of the collapse of interpersonal relationships. The exhibition combines a series of “MANIFESTATIONS” photograms printed on canvas with a series of sculptures “Hands of Midas” referring to the ancient story of the curse of the king of Phrygia turning everything he touches into gold. For Wodyński, gold becomes a perverse symbol leading to the fall of civilization.
