Marek “Rogulus” Rogulski is an artist thanks to whom the worn-out clichés – independent, free-thinking, spirited and honest to the bone – regain their original radiance. The artist creates situations, events and spaces by means of his fascinating visual and musical activities. His performances and actions have gathered many a faithful fan from all over Poland, whose number is continually increasing. After all, to participate in Rogulus’ performance is a cathartic experience. This means that when one participates in it, one re-establishes one’s link with reality – this reality which offers space for greatness and uniqueness of one’s life in spite of the apathetic routine of mundanity. Moreover, the artist does not only offer us a singular experience but a long-lasting intellectual adventure. He is erudite and a theoretician, provoking lively discussion. He creates concepts and terms in order to make his specific language adequately express his amazing quest.

Valves and Limi_potrophes is the title of the exhibition which Rogulus has been preparing especially for the Gdańsk City Gallery during the last year. The viewer, depending on their mood and preferences, will be able to either engross in an intellectual game or sink into a hypnotic space. The best option will be when the viewer crosses the threshold of the impossible, activating their intellect, sensitivity and intuition – all at the same time. Anna Markowska, the curator of the exhibition, ensures us that the genesis of Rogulus’ art lies in his fight for his own soul and its power. Therefore, the exhibition reveals the multiplicity of the artist’s roles and incarnations, including the craziest ones, such as the aurucho-cow and the shaman-divine-virgin.       

Anything can happen when you become gripped by the frenzy of Rogulus’ exceptional art!
