"Lodz Kaliska's installation titled 'Co sprawia' / 'Just What Is It that Makes' consists of hordes of posters distributed throughout the city and four large billboards (suspended above the city's main pedestrian thoroughfare, Piotrkowska Street). These will advertise the 'Artdom' / 'Arthouse' supermarket, which offers all manner of items for the home. Four versions of the poster and billboard have been produced, with each version showing the same goods priced in four different currencies (zlotys, shekels, euro and rubles), as well as four women, four bodybuilders, four astronauts, four nations, four newspapers, four languages, the same sofas, armchairs, carpets, television sets, vacuum cleaners, plants - everything! The same muscles, the same newspaper content... (...)"The poster is deeply symbolic. The woman symbolizes motherhood, the bodybuilder strength, plants stand for nature, the vacuum cleaner denotes cleanliness. The stairs stand for development, the ceiling for heaven, the window for openness, the carpet for planet earth. The sofas symbolize affluence, the armchairs - tradition, the television - civilization, the lamp - knowledge (...) the table denotes understanding, the astronaut stands for success (...). If the customer wishes, these elements can symbolize something entirely different. Each of them has its price. Prices describe accessibility. Languages describe names. Why are there different languages if they all speak of the same? (...) Just what is it that makes our homes the way they are? Has life truly come to resemble art?"The State Higher School of Film, Television and Theatre in Lodz will host a film series titled "Czterech wielkich, czterech kultur" / "Four Greats of Four Cultures" (7-11 September), which will feature films directed by Volker Schloendorff, Wojciech Has, Andrei Tarkovsky and Roman Polanski. Viewers will have an opportunity to see titles like BLASZANY BEBENEK / THE TIN DRUM, REKOPIS ZNALEZIONY W SARAGOSSIE / THE SARAGOSSA MANUSCRIPT, SOLARIS and NOZ W WODZIE / KNIFE IN THE WATER.
