Dirty Works is a joint initiative of Stephanie Syjuco and Piotr Bujak, and it consists of completed projects, as well as “work-in-progress” projects performed throughout the duration of the exhibition.


Common denominator for both artists – both graduated from legendary San Francisco Art Institute (Stephanie Syjuco BFA '95, Piotr Bujak MFA '12) – is the creation with the use of various mediums of multilevel statements on the subject of contemporary capitalism and consumerism, as well as oppressiveness of post-pop culture reality. Their works, with distinctive Post-Marxist sensibility, characteristic to America West Coast avant-garde, are usually created with the use of Do-It-Yourself strategy and perversely sophisticated low budget aesthetics . Project prepared in cooperation with Kronika from Bytom is Stephanie Syjuco’s artistic debut in Poland at the same time.
