Acoustic Gestures | BWA Gallery in Bydgoszcz
Since 2014, as part of their international artist residencies, Ewa and Jacek Doroszenko have been creating unique scores in the form of video works and graphic installations. The resulting works have been presented by the artists in numerous exhibitions, including at the Witold Lutosławski National Forum of Music in Wroclaw, the Polish Institute in Düsseldorf, Cidade das Artes in Rio de Janeiro, Goldcorp Centre for the Arts in Vancouver. The audio-visual exhibition „Acoustic Gestures” at the BWA Gallery in Bydgoszcz displays the latest works by the Doroszenko duo, which emphasize the role of the sense of hearing in the process of experiencing the environment.
The exhibition is part of the Fonomo Music & Film Festival.

Unstable Oscillations | The Witold Lutosławski National Forum of Music
Ewa Doroszenko and Jacek Doroszenko’s audiovisual project consists of video works, large-format graphic installations and a sound installation. The visual form of the works presented results directly from the sound sphere. Revealing the acoustic space of reality, the duo experiments with new technologies, relevant to the modern digital age. The graphic installations illustrate the path that sounds material travels in music production, especially electronic music: recording, reproduction, deconstruction, frequency cutting, working with the spectrum, compression, looping and distortion.

The exhibition is open from 13 May 2023 through 21 May 2023
Polish Institute Düsseldorf
The visual form of all the works shown in the exhibition results directly from their sonic layer. Through this chronological order of their artistic work, Ewa and Jacek Doroszenko draw attention to the need to give auditory perception an appropriate place in the predominantly visual contemporary culture. In the latest video, Jacek Doroszenko works with minimalist objects that play a four-part piece like traditional instruments, reminiscent of Witold Lutosławski’s “Jeux Vénitiens”. Other works by the artist are video scores in which the movement of the filmed figure determines the character of the musical composition played. Ewa Doroszenko confronts the acoustic environment through more remote references by translating selected sound events into a synthetic visual language. With the help of abstract black-and-white structures, the artist captures the sound spreading in time and space in a static form.

Photography+ Photoworks – Interview, 2022
Polish artists Ewa Doroszenko and Jacek Doroszenko met on a residency programme in Italy and have been married for over ten years. Both originally trained as painters, but now make work across the spectrum of contemporary media together and individually. They are inspired by a common interest in contemporary technological reality. Their most recent project, Bodyfulness, combines photographs and gif-files made by Ewa and an album of musical compositions by Jacek and considers the potentials and paradoxes of digital intimacy. Photography+ caught up with them to find out more.

Metascore of new gestures
The exhibition entitled Metascore of New Gestures is a review of joint artistic experiments carried out by Ewa and Jacek Doroszenko in 2016–2022. Wrocław Contemporary Museum presents sound installations, video works and a series of graphics on paper. The duo’s creative work stems from their fascination with the relations between sound, space and visuality. In this triad, acoustic phenomena constitute the basis for artistic work, but the space that determines the entire process is equally important, providing the activities with a performative aspect.

Jacek Doroszenko feat. Ewa Doroszenko – Bodyfulness

This time the musician invited Ewa Doroszenko, an intermedia artist, with whom they work together in the field of contemporary art, travel as part of Artist-in-Residence, and create joint exhibitions.
A WOMEN’S THING – Interview, 2022
Warsaw-based intermedia artist Ewa Doroszenko’s practice is a graphic showcase of blending classic photography with digital manipulation and traditional painting.
Doroszenko’s works are made with great attention to detail—and an emphasis toward aesthetics. Yet underneath the obvious layers of beauty, the viewer can find the hidden, deeper issues, as if Doroszenko wants to tell us that, after all, everything is much more complicated than it seems.
We spoke with Doroszenko about what her typical day as an artist looks like, how the people of her home country Poland are helping Ukrainians during the war, and how her grandparents’ history still has an influence today.

Skin – International Photography Exhibition, Membrana, Cankarjev dom, Ljubljana (SI), 2022
The exhibition Skin unveils different photographic practices, touching the topic of skin, be it gently or roughly, from its superficial mindfulness, its microscopic structures, to its social embodiment – in the economy of the gaze, it oscillates between the desired and demanded, exposing physicality, the relations between the real and the created, between immersion and deconstruction.
19 January – 1 March 2022, Cankarjev dom, Cultural and Congress Centre Ljubljana, and Membrana Institute
Exhibiting artists: Anne Noble, Ewa Doroszenko, Goran Bertok, Gorkem Ergun, Karina-Sirkku Kurz, Špela Šivic

NEO2 Magazine – interview, 2021
Ewa Doroszenko. Unreal beauty in all its splendor.
In her latest works, Polish artist Ewa Doroszenko focuses on the risks associated with beauty apps and the distortion of virtual beauty models. Ewa Doroszenko’s photographic work is based on manual and digital manipulation of images. The results are sensual and intriguing collages that address the pulsating issues of contemporary life, particularly the importance of the image in an increasingly technological reality and the fluidity of current standards of female beauty…

The second exhibition of Ewa and Jacek Doroszenko in Propaganda is a real untruth or an untrue reality. Through multiplied transformations of elements taken out from the real and virtual worlds, they created tangible evidence that today’s life, consciousness, and subjectivity extend far beyond our senses and travel through the areas of the medialized digital world.
Double speaker – exhibition, Exgirlfriend Gallery, Berlin

SOUNDLAB: LYNX IN HEADPHONES #7, interview by Anna Prokop
Have you ever wondered how sound affects your perception of a certain place, your visual imagination, or even your memories? Two artists, Jacek and Ewa Doroszenko have created „Soundreaming”, an audio-visual project considering these phenomena. In May, they will release an album of music from the series, containing immersive, well-thought-out, dreamy compositions based on field recordings from the time of their artistic residency at the Hangar in Barcelona…
Exercises of listening, Fait Gallery, Brno
Exhibition: 23.03.2016 – 04.05.2016
In the first solo show of Ewa Doroszenko and Jacek Doroszenko in Brno, the sound is treated as a legitimate material of visual art, audible and visible spheres interact. The sound recording technique allows us to approach the environmental sound’s transparency and present it visually in a new context.
The Drawers, Kasia Michalski Gallery
Opening: September 3rd, 2015
The exhibition is open till September 17
The title of the presentation, THE DRAWERS, refers both to the place as well as to the subjects of the show. The majority of works were made on paper, although drawing is not the only medium the artists utilize. The works showcased at the exhibition aptly represent the artists’ styles and their manifold interests and activities: Rafał Dominik’s interest in pop culture, Ewa Doroszenko’s digital collages inspired by her many travels, Ewa Iwaniuk and Szymon Szewczyk’s exploration of the ordinary, Maria Jeglinska and Piotr Krzymowski’s use of found images, Maess’ expressive hand-drawn compositions, Magdalena Lapinska’s playful paintings and to Michał Gayer’s intriguing watercolours and ink sketches.
Exhibiting Artists: Rafał Dominik, Ewa Doroszenko, Michał Gayer, Ewa Iwaniuk, Maria Jeglińska, Piotr Krzymowski, Magdalena Estera Łapińska, Maess, Szymon Szewczyk
