ExplainIt become a partner of Ujazdowski Castle Centre
for Contemporary Art in Warsaw, Poland

Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art ranks among the most important and prestigious contemporary art museums in Poland, with nearly 1500 artistic event including exhibitions, concerts and workshops held there annually. hyslom collective's exhibition (more info below) is planned to be the first of the whole series of upcoming Ujazdowski's Castle's exhibitions where Explainit will be used!
The exhibition Itte kaette: Back and Forth comprises 6 large-format installations constructed in 5 halls on the ground floor and in the courtyard of Ujazdowski Castle. Each reflects the experiences of travelling with a stone that the hyslom collective carried across Poland and Europe.
A journey with a stone & its transformation into the form of an exhibition is a story about memory, power and the agency of matter:
bodies, landscape, objects.
The exhibition has been constructed with input from people met along the way, and mounted with the participation of helpers – including students, a helmsman, pigeon-breeders, a geologist, a shamanic cheerleader and friends of the artists. The exhibition took shape with the effort of human hands as well as the forces of nature: the installations use the water displacement in a well in the Castle's courtyard, connected to the Vistula River, the migration of racing pigeons, and the sand and clay transported by the river.
Itte kaette in Japanese means " back and forth " . This constant change , movement , and the method of collective action , created by Kato Itaru , Fuminori Yoshida Yu Hoshino. The installations have been made from materials used in construction and transport – traversing the world back and forth, returning to the same places but in a new form – made of wood, sand, water and transport boxes.
