Heat Gets Under Everyone’s Skin



W-arte! Łowicka 56/3

“Heat Gets Under Everyone’s Skin”, a sli­de show por­tray­ing the sum­mer holi­day season, boasts a series of pho­to­gra­phs that are either tre­asu­re from anti­que mar­kets or gift gran­ted by people who had ren­de­red them use­less. Despi­te the pas­sing of time, thanks to ORWO­chro­me and Kodak­chro­me mate­rials, the colors of pho­to­gra­phies are much more live­ly than hues seen thro­ugh the win­dow.
During the show, the ana­log pro­jec­tion of the ama­teur pho­to­gra­phs will rede­em the for­got­ten memo­ries, taking us back to scol­ding hot sum­mers of the past cen­tu­ry. The­se pic­tu­res aren’t ava­ila­ble any­whe­re else (with even Google Ima­ges ren­de­red hel­pless), as the­ir only copy is held by Kaje­tan Plis,the ini­tia­tor of the pro­ject.

In order to help the audien­ce ade­qu­ate­ly immer­se into nostal­gic world of the bygo­ne era, the show is accom­pa­nied by a pat­chwork-radio play blen­ding a num­ber of the 80s DT’s (the predecessor’s of the main news pro­gram­me of the Polish Tele­vi­sion – TVP1) repor­ta­ges on sum­mer.

Cur­ren­tly, the show inc­lu­des appro­xi­ma­te­ly 250 pho­to­gra­phies, whi­le the audio mate­rial lasts for almost 30 minu­tes. The col­lec­tion of the pre­sen­ted ima­ges is an object of con­stant trans­for­ma­tion, some­ti­mes incre­asing or chan­ging its con­tent. During the meeting, Kaje­tan Plis, the ini­tia­tor him­self, will discuss the pro­ject.
