„SONGS ARE SPELLS” publikacja audio – video autorstwa Diany Rönnberg to swoista muzyczna i wizualna ‘lista TOP’ COMBI CATS. Zawiera kompilację historii piosenki i teledysku. Łączy elementy hip – hopu, rapu wraz z poetyckością komentarzy Claude Debusy’ego i mocno zaakcentowaną postawą Billie Holiday, czy tricksterów. Wszystkie formy piosenek wywodzą się z idei braterstwa, czyli communitas, interpretowanego głównie poprzez powiązanie z „zaczarowanym” stanem liminalnym. Ronnberg mówi o liminalności jak o stanie odseparowania i resetu, przestrzeni społecznej, w której dokonuje się zmiana. Wszystkie ‘głosy’ Combi Cats mówią o stawaniu się: artystki, muzyka, poetki, kobiety, społeczeństwa natury…

THE ISLAND | Michalina Bigaj

The definition of island in geographical terms of land surrounded by water is only a starting point for Michalina Bigaj’s artistic exploration. A study tour to Iceland inspired her to take up the subject of island in her work, both in its universal and local sense. Seclusion and isolation are the features most commonly associated with this topos, and in the case of the farthest northern part of Europe, it additionally evokes a vision of a country full of contradictions; the land of ice and hot springs. The meetings with inhabitants of Iceland, the stories heard from them as well as the artist’s own experience gathered in the course of her journeys, confirmed her opinion that nature still has tremendous influence on the residents’ lives. The artists builds a visual narrative about the relationship between people and the unbridled forces of nature which force them to continue to adapt to the nature’s rules.
