More information
‘In the film Stałe zajęcie (Permanent position), Tyszkiewicz and Sosnowski attempt to analyse, with the use of artistic language, the internal psychological processes in the relationship between a man and a woman, while building visual equivalents of such experiences. They create a network of subtle tensions arising out of the plot which is a series of facts-relations improvised by the woman and man who are the authors of the film. They use props, such as fur or cigar, to accentuate the strong sexual emotions which pervade the image.’ (As cited in: Ewa Gorządek, Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art, December 2007, culture.pl.)
