Tomasz Szrama

An enormous ambiguous eye stares from the window. It appears physically and psychologically trapped in the confines of the window frame and alludes to a larger body within. Perhaps it merely observes, maybe it controls, … or positions itself in judgment. Perhaps it’s the eye of a neighbour, Big Brother, or an all-seeing God. Perhaps it is confused.

Tomasz Szrama (b. 1970, Poland) graduated in 1998 from the fine art graphics department of ASP in Wroclaw. Szrama shifts between multiple disciplines, including video, installation and time-based works. He uses a variety of appropriate platforms to disseminate his practice including the web, the gallery space and the found public venue.

Tomasz Szrama lives and works in Helsinki, Finland.

“Tomma händer – Tomma händer – Empty hands”

Jörgen Erkius | Nordic Residency December 2008 – February 2009


The film “Tomma händer” is based on a poem by the Finnish poet and playwright Josef Julius Wecksell (1838-1907), namely the second of three fragments. It represents an early vision on later modernistic litterature and was written during the time of his mental breakdown. Probably in the year 1862 at the age of 23.

“Tomma händer
Mörka stränder
Sorgsen våg och tyst
Varifrån komma
Ord som blomma
Döden allt ju kysst”


14’00. In the roles of Josef Julius Wecksell: Sue Lemström and Julia Johansson.
