RENOMA Department Store is more than a temple of retail, it also is the Mecca of modern art admirers. The list of artists and works created especially for Renoma has grown steadily over the years — the circle of Jarosław Fliciński, Karol Radziszewski, Studio VerPan and Studio PUFF-BUFF has been joined by Istvan Kantor.
Our works of art astonish with their innovative and conceptual qualities, while provoking reflection and fun. They make the public space of a department store gain an additional dimension, allowing visitors to experience latest trends in modern art. Works of young Polish artists featured in Renoma are important elements of this place, distinguishing it from other department stores, not only in Wrocław, but throughout Poland as well. And these are not temporary exhibitions of artistic achievements or occasional cultural events, but permanent works, designed from the beginning with the view of their display in Renoma. The exhibits include examples of painting and spatial installations as well as examples of the modern industrial design. In 2014, the collection was expanded with a graffiti created during the exhibition “Media Revolt,” presented in Renoma, by the Hungarian artist Istvan Kantor. The graffiti combines elements characteristic for the oeuvre of Kantor, with references made to the institutional role of art, fight for the individuality of an individual in the technological society, and a form of a rebellion towards the social situation which he lives in.
