The exhibition is an attempt to gather within one gallery space the works of representatives of the Polish art scene using in various ways the theme of toys to formulate their own artistic narratives. Toys can be an inspiration, theme, tool, and artistic material. The attractiveness of industrial products for children also affects adults, especially artists, for whom it is an opportunity to reflect on reality in its various dimensions. Among them, you can find stories about interpersonal relations, the condition of modern society, civilisation and ecological problems. There are also surreal worlds created on the basis of a toy prop room. The exhibition presents selected artists and their methods to build narratives based on a common iconographic area.

Curator: Aniela Mroczek. “TOY STORIES” is the first exhibition from the “10x10” exhibition series. The “10x10” project is carried out by the “Open Studio” Artistic Association in Lublin in cooperation with Galeria Labirynt and the Centre for Culture in Lublin. Co-financed by the Minister of Culture, National Heritage and Sport from the Culture

Promotion Fund.
