1 Granary x Display London: I Where A Dress launch

Without meaning to sound cocky, we overheard a lot of comments like this at our exhibition launch, between pouring champagne, sliding past each other through doors, and amongst the smokers outside. It was much the same even when it was quiet, with spectators whispering approval in the dark, whilst Alex Anikina's Some Entropy in Your Tea played.

I Where A Dress in detail… Jan Manski

The confrontational vision of Polish-born Jan Manski’s multi-disciplinary projects explores the fundamental elements of the contemporary individual’s fixations. By combining his skilful, macabre productions with a little bit of humour, Mankin manages to reference modern culture, mythology and history in an ambitious way. Through his work, Manski channels the most narcissistic traits of our society as a disfiguring force, driving us into a self-destructive future of unattainable perfection. With a meticulous sense of detail and feeling for the grotesque, Manski’s ‘alternative universe’ is downright disturbing. But inevitably there’s no pleasure without pain, and what follows in Manski’s invented world is a state of gradual disfiguration and destruction brought on by ourselves. Such is the price to pay for our obsession with vanity.
