Living the naturist life on a beach on La Gomera, and living in a cave….. I made this film from a humorous and arty angle, presuming this fellow to be shipwrecked.

Oko za oko (An Eye for an Eye) consists of a set of three large-format color photographs and a video. The photographs and video depict naked men with amputated limbs, accompanied by able-bodied people, who in the staged photographs and in the film “lend” their limbs to the amputated as they stroll, climb stairs or bathe. The naked bodies of the protagonists were assembled by the artist in complex compositions creating bodily hybrids: two-headed men, men with two pairs of arms etc., and at the same time the appearance of new able-bodied organisms in which the “healthy” supply the amputated with substitute limbs. The title of Zmijewski’s work recalls the antique rule of dispensing justice, but the artist is not concerned with the question of revenge but with that of possibilities.
Recorrido falaz de una prosa audiovisual con argumentaciones dislocadas. Esfuerzo incontinente de mostrar una eventualidad traumática, vigente y presencial. Producto casero desde la mazamorra de la imaginación pornográfica. Continuación del intento por exorcizar una instancia interiorizada. Publicidad de un par de testículos bajo una guitarra.
