ANETA GRZESZYKOWSKA & JAN SMAGA: PLAN, a photographic exhibition consisting of ten large-scale C-prints, is one of the most significant contemporary art projects to emerge from Poland. It took two years for Aneta Grzeszykowska and Jan Smaga to create this series of ten highly unusual prints, each of which documents the contents of an apartment with extreme precision, including its occupants, from a normally unavailable perspective: from above. Hundreds of individual photographs were processed and merged using computers to produce each finished print. In his essay on Grzeszykowska and Smaga's work, the writer Marek Krajewski, who teaches at Wroclaw University, marvels at the "perfection, continuity, and completeness of representation - unimaginable in traditional photography." Ultimately, this "X-ray of privacy" is "a simple story about life, which consists of an infinite amount of elements and details, as well as the sheer pleasure of perceiving them".
