A MIRROR WITH SILENT MEMORY exhibition is a story about the diversity of forms, themes and artistic messages of photographic works by art brut and outsider art artists associated with the ArtBrut Gallery & Studio in Wrocław, created over the years of the venue's activity.

The creators of ArtBrut Gallery are sensitive artists who have developed their unique and recognisable styles. Their artistic activities reflect their deep creative individuality, manifested in unconventional shots, unusual perspectives and often surprising themes. The final vision of the exhibition is the result of a collaboration between the artists of ArtBrut Gallery and photographer Wojtek Chrubasik, who has been working with the gallery for years, carrying out creative activities and documenting events. In addition to artistic works, the exhibition features a presentation of the ArtBrut Photo Agents Project, carried out by the artists of the ArtBrut Gallery & Studio with Wojtek Chrubasik. As part of this project, the artists visited befriended art and cultural institutions, producing photographic documentation.

Photographic works by the Gallery & Studio artists have been shown at numerous exhibitions at ArtBrut Gallery and external festivals and events such as ON THE COMMON. WAVES EVERYWHERE 2 / 15th Media Art Biennale WRO 2013 PIONEERING VALUES, Wroclaw 2013; ANTIDOTUM / 12th SURVIVAL Art Review ‘CITY – INFLAMMATORY STATE’, Wrocław 2014; EAT ART / openHUB Europe project, Milan, Italy 2015; PARDELÀ LES TABOUS / ART ET DÉCHIRURE festival, Rouen, France 2016; OCCUPATION / 5TH BIENNALE OF URBAN ART – OUT OF STH.

A MIRROR WITH SILENT MEMORY being the first exhibition to focus solely on photography, forms part of the year of ArtBrut Gallery's 15th anniversary celebrations, presenting works made by its artists between 2009 and 2024.
