Potencja hails from Kraków, and Kraków is a town of markets: there’s Stary Kleparz, Nowy Kleparz, Hala Targowa… The list goes on. Obviously you’ve got plenty of your own markets in Warsaw, but we’re not familiar with them, so we’ll set up some new ones for you. The Potencja fair presents the many objects we’ve collected over the few years since we launched — the artistic surplus that clutters our dungeons, the trash and treasure that has amassed and swelled, threatening to rupture the walls of our gallery. These objects are usually inaccessible, hidden from prying eyes. Here we have a stuffed… well, better not spoil the surprise. At WGW we’ll offer our visitors a range of artistic services, discussions on life and art, realistic portraits, caricatures, photoreals, no-lookers, and outdoor installations.

Is this market our attempt to transplant Kraków’s artist-run space into the setting of Warsaw’s gallery weekend? No… well, yeah, I used to be a mechanic, but I didn’t do space shuttles. We’re coming to Warsaw with bags full of treasure, but we plan on going home empty-handed.
