Flowers of Our Lives, 2008, curated by Joanna Zielinska

From when she was 13 years old until her death in 2001, Janina Turek wrote diaries where she noted all her everyday activities: eating, making phone calls, watching TV, meeting friends. She created a kind of collection of everyday activities, which she systematized according to colours and numbers, and she divided her life into 32 categories. Janina Turek also collected postcards, family pictures, books, records, and other things. A collection of over 700 notebooks was found by her family after her death.

An Exceptional Collection, made in 1973, is one of the short films shot by Walerian Borowczyk. The film presents an extraordinary collection of erotic gadgets, drawings and photographs, which belonged to the artist. The background for the story is a stylish interior which remains a curio cabinet. The film is a story about fetishism in the spirit of psychoanalysis presented in a funny way, typical of Borowczyk.
