Film about the school
Dir Dominik Ritszel
2014
Polska
The video focuses on specific architectural elements in the space of the school, which create a symbolic game field between the students and the institution. The students’ silhouettes are inscribed into the growing rhythm of the building’s architecture; passages, dressing room, corridors, gyms etc. The building seems to be obsessed with organising and putting everything in order. Institutions take away the feeling of identity, imposing not only the discipline of given actions, but also the discipline of existence.   Dominik Ritszel was born in 1988 in Rybnik. He studied at the Faculty of Graphics at the Institute of Arts at the University of Silesia in Cieszyn and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice, where he did graphic arts. His works were exhibited, among others, at international video art festivals Les Rencontres Internationales (Gaîté Lyrique, Palais de Tokyo, Paris) and Video Art Review THE 02 Spaces as a tool for shaping social attitudes. He participated in group exhibitions, such as the Show Off Section at the Krakow Photomonth Festival (2013), Curators Network in the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCAK) in Krakow (2012), Mum, I just really need to focus on my art right now in the Arsenał Gallery in Poznan (2012), and in a collective exhibition presenting works of young Silesian artists Mleczne Zęby (Milk Teeth) in the BWA Contemporary Art Gallery in Katowice (2013). He had solo exhibitions in the Centre for Contemporary Art Kronika in Bytom and in the Silesian Museum in Katowice. He was chosen among the three finalists of the Talenty Trójki 2013 contest in the Visual Arts category, he was short-listed for the Grey House Foundation Prize. In 2014 he was awarded the Young Poland Programme scholarship. In spring 2014 he stayed in the A-I-R Laboratory in the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle as an artist in residence, where he produced Versus presented in Bank Pekao Project Room in Warsaw. In 2015 he participated in a group exhibition Waiting for Better Times curated by Magda Kardasz (Zachęta Project Room, Warsaw).

Short Cacophony Of Ugliness' is about how many things in our lives are not important at all. Under the pretext of adaptation a 'Floaters' ('Topielice', a poem by Maria Pawlikowska-Jasnorzewska) I tried to find objectivity with respect to reduction of value, nihilism and ideological doubts.
Video is based on the combination of opposite characteristics; excessive 'nice looking' interacts here with degraded quality, poetry with childish chatter, naturalistic document intertwine with the surrealistic narration, and the value of human life is measured on the scale of accompanying ugliness.
Ostensible order of logical responses is disturbed, the movie suggests to the viewer the probability of finding the truth in the experience seemingly unreal and comical. However narration allows to judge, whether the conclusion of the film is universal and objective truth or just transposition of the philosophy contained in poem.
 
Pat Dudek (born 1992) currently studies Film and Multimedia at the Warsaw Film School and is a graduate of the Liceum Plastyczne im. Wojciecha Gersona in Warsaw. He works with visual arts (graphic art), audio (production, sound, vocals), video and performance art. He is mostly influenced by modern conceptual artists, ritualism and primitive art. In his works, he combines social issues such as impossibility of adaptation, uniformity or the impact of aggressive capitalism on spiritualism and folk rituals. Co-founder and lead singer of the musical project Undine.

  • Jury of 2nd stage: Mikołaj Trzaska
    Mikołaj Trzaska – born in Gdańsk, saxophonist, bass clarinetist and composer, grew out of yass – a socio-artistic movement that in the 80-ties/ 90-ties opposed the rigidity of Polish jazz environment. Together with Tymon Tymański and a group of other musicians free from any doctrine they changed the image of Polish jazz music. Trzaska was the co-founder of the most important yass group – legendary Miłość and of as creative Łoskot. Although the impetus of yass faded away many years ago he became the leader of national improvisation scene. After the yass period he recorded a few concentrated and quiet albums with the section of Oleś brothers. He also accompanied poets – Świetlicki and Andrukhovych, he created muical – literary projects with Andrzej Stasiuk.
    Today he is the leader of international trio Volumen and the member of among others Resonance of Ken Vandermark, Magic – Joe McPhee or Shofar trio with Raphael Rogiński and Macio Moretti – playing Jewish music. But above all he realizes himself in the radical contemporary free jazz. He travels around the world cooperating with personalities of world improvisation among others with Peter Brötzmann, Joe McPhee, Ken Vandermak, Peter Friis Nielsen, Clementine Gasser, Pete Ole Jorgensen, Michael Zerang, Franz Houtzinger, Jay Rosen, Domik Duval, Mark Sanders. He has recorded around thirty albums.
