Finissage "Hominem quaero" by Lech Mazurek PHOTO REPORTAGE

On 5th of March a finissage of the exhibition by Lech Mazurek took place. The event took place in Centre for the Meeting of Cultures in Lublin, Temporary exhibition gallery +1

Hominem quaero (I'm looking for a man) is a Latin maxim expressing disbelief in finding a real human among people. The prototype is attributed to a Greek philosopher from the group of cynics, Diogenes of Sinope. In the age of the Internet, global networks, and cyber-surveillance facial recognition technologies, this expression has taken on a new meaning.

Currently, in times of a pandemic and social distance, we can assign it even more recent content. The exhibition of Lech Mazurek will present several dozen graphic works in the inkjet printing technique. They will show the faces of specific people, recognizable and anonymous, sometimes hybrid. Fizis, image: an authentic person or a mask? To what extent is today's human a real person, and to what extent is an avatar and a projection of its own or the image of others? Or maybe the embodiment of an idea, or a symbol of the times?
