Everything that happens inside us has already happened during our childhood. It’s the common belief, probably only partially confirmed by psychological research. It was during our childhood that parents taught us self-confidence or escape from confrontation. It’s the tenderness we were treated with, or deprived of, that makes us open towards other or suspect them of evil intentions. It’s our fathers who thought us cordial submissiveness towards authorities or rebellion against the sheer fact of their existence. It’s our mothers who made us sensitive to the needs of the loved ones, or constantly irritated by their claims. Reportedly, the Romanticist literature finds its source in the attitudes of the parents of the Romantics. Toughening the children up” resulted in dreams about water nymphs, alder trees and noble love suffering. (…)

It is not without a reason that Katarzyna Adaszewska decided to present her quite large works at the individual exhibition in the Municipal Gallery in Bydgoszcz. Screens with writings: mom, dad, a pile of toys, a reprimand made of human-sized letters diminish the viewer to a child’s size. They remind of the times when we ourselves were children and tell us to keep that look of the world. We surrender to the pressure of someone’s discontent. Somebody’s shaking their threatening finger at us. Kindly, but consequently. Maybe it’s because we didn’t pick up the pile of toys. We’re stuck between mom and dad, imprisoned not so much by their presence, as by their summoning. (…)
