CURA, Working 9 to 5

March 26, 2022

Opening: 26-27.03 w godz. 12 – 20

Curator: Martyna Stołpiec, Cooperation: Milena Stryjewska



The thing we value most is time.

We get paid for spending our time.

Others are grateful when we give them our time.

We spend money in order to experience something for a specific amount of time.

We are constantly reminded that there isn’t a lot of time left.

We fear that we are not using our time correctly.

Time is also the most abstract construct that we experience.

We speak of it constantly yet the concept is impossible to grasp.

We can have a bad day, but we’ll forget it in time.

Are we using our time correctly? I guess only time will tell.

I want to be in control of my time; at least for a short amount of time.

If I illustrate my time maybe then I can grasp it. But will it be worth anything?

Maybe if I did it for 8 hours, the socially accepted amount of time when our time is worth something.



Cura comes to work Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. She has the weekend off. He works on a 2m x 1m canvas. The canvas is hung on two beams on a frame in the exhibition room of the Foksal Gallery (52°14′04″N 21°01′25″E). As he works, she ticks off every second spent at the canvas (the artist’s workspace). Every 55 minutes he has a 5-minute break and one longer, 15-minute break during the day (according to health and safety regulations). After each day’s work, a photo is taken and Cura answers three questions:

– How do you feel after work?

– Are you satisfied with the work you did?

– What are your plans for the weekend?
