Octopus Group is an informal association of six visual artists linked to Academy for Fine Art in Katowice, Poland: Bartek Buczek, Michał Gayer, Szymon Kobylarz, Marta Lisok, Maciej Nawrot and Michał Smandek. The group with its secret, internal codes has not aimed at creating common works. It’s been more like a mafia structure – created to broaden contacts and influences, generating impulses. “Octopus is a group of people who are supporting each other at creating art. Where there is no impulse for an action we have to provoke it”. Although very young members of Octopus Group have already had some very prestigious exhibitions in the best galleries in Poland. ARTica wants now to introduce their works to the international audience of Dublin.
The works to be presented in Dublin are very different, consisting of paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations and videos. The link between them will be their subjects – things that are impossible to define. Space, unidentified objects, black holes, unexplained facts… Mystery and myth.
