Art Student says sorry

video, 2 min 36 sec, 2015

In the film, which was published on a YouTube channel, I admit my decision to study at the Academy of Fine Arts was a mistake. I apologise and address directly my parents, inhabitants of my village, the Minister of Culture and National Heritage, the Prime Minister, the Rector of my university, taxpayers, and Oskar Dawicki.

The comments published under the film show my confession was taken to be a honest statement and triggered a discussion on the role and usefulness of art in contemporary society. The more interesting aspect of the work was using the Internet as a platform for communicating with the audience, which often also meant being exposed to a wave of vulgar and offensive comments.
