Grolsch Bottle Art – the 2nd edition of a competition for young independent artists for a club furnishing item project with the use of Grolsch beer bottles, cans, kegs, cartons or logotype.
The competition was held in cooperation with 9 clubs in Warsaw, Poznań and Krakow. Objects designed by young artists will become permanent elements of these clubs’ furnishing and interior design.
The jury of this year\'s edition was unanimous: projects entered into the competition were surprisingly utilitarian and recycling-oriented. The winners received cash prizes and the chosen designs have been installed in the most popular Polish clubs.
The winner of Grolsch Bottle Art 2013, awarded with a cash prize of PLN 4,000 is Ewa Dyk from Krakow. An outdoor seat designed for the Opcja club in Poznań seems to be exactly what the club lacked. Grass surrounding a beer keg gives this simple, yet charming design a humorous touch and is, above all, useful – says Małgorzata Gołębiewska, the jury’s president, in justification of their choice. Additionally, two authors were awarded with honourable mentions and PLN 1,000 cash prizes for their equally interesting designs with the use of Grolsch beer bottles; external lighting for the Dragon Club’s garden in w Poznań by Anna Szczęsna and coat hanger for Strefa Kultywator in Poznań by Krystian Kusz. Elegant and detailed finish, as well as non-blatant presence of the object which even fitted into the club\'s surrounding attracted the jury’s attention.
The level represented by designs entered into this year’s edition of the competition was a pleasing surprise for the jury. The designers prepared their project keeping the target locations, in which they would like to arrange space, in mind. Among the projects entered into the competition, there were: cloakroom tickets, coat and handbag hangers, outdoor lighting and garden furniture, but also a fireplace design and a mural.
All the winning designs have been installed and displayed in selected clubs in Warsaw, Krakow and Poznań. Some of them will certainly stay there for a long time, because, as the owners of the partner clubs have told us, the designs appear to be useful on a daily basis and emphasize the character of the venues.

The project, ReFRESZ – Refresh Your Apartment Building!, is part of the Levy en Masse campaign, launched by rappers L.U.C. and Sokół, whose objective is to purify the visual-aesthetic look of Krakow and make it more homogeneous by introducing art and design to the walls of apartment buildings. Housing associations and cooperatives had until the 7th of June to submit buildings which require renovation and artistic intervention. In the end, the jury selected the building at ul. Lipińskiego 18.

|WHO||WHAT||Street Art Auction|
screen prints workshop participants
Since the first auction held in the Bonhams auction house in early 2008, street art has become a fixture of the art market.
It is no longer the province of a small group of aficionados – artists who create street art and are often also its recipients. It is no longer associated with art directed at “young” audiences. Works by street artists, fetching elevated prices, have become the centre of attention of art collectors, and numerous street art auctions are held across the globe.
Krakow Street Art Auction had been distinct in its form from previous events. The pre-auction exhibition was displayed in the public sphere. The works on offer had not been “torn out” of their natural setting, as happens in other places. A participant of the auction needed to reach the selected works and get involved in the purchase with his or her entire body.
To participate in the auction, register by sending your application to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Subject to an entry fee of PLN 10.
A catalogue listing the works on offer is available from the festival’s website.
The auction was managed by Galeria v9, in association with Fundacja vlevnet.
Curator: Iza Kaszyńska

Reenactment of Gilbert&George's The Singing Sculpture, 2007
A series of reenactments of historical performances inside synthetic worlds such as Second Life. All the actions are performed by Eva and Franco Mattes through their avatars, which were constructed from their bodies and faces. People can attend and interact with the live performances connecting to the video-game from all over the world. The series started in January 2007.
MADE IN INTERNET is a showcase of short video forms created by web artists. This selection reflects the trends and concepts of contemporary new media in the last 5 years, which revolve around blogs, streaming video and social media: the late, consumer oriented Web 2.0.
In this new artistic universe appropriation is taken for granted, the attention span is minimal and the reward takes form of a micro-cathartic realization after a conceptual game of seemingly superficial images and symbols. The works in the show stem from the web: they either have been created from found internet material or produced specifically for that platform.
MADE IN INTERNET gathers a group of 22 artists (some of them collaborative groups) from USA, Canada, Holland, Germany, Italy, Austria and Taiwan.
