The article is devoted to the analysis of the function of objects in Miron Bialoszewski's prose texts. It shows an interest in every day objects as a characteristic feature of art in second half of 20th century. As a result, ready-made, amballage, assamblage and environment become the contexts of the analyzed texts. Objects create collages in the texts' descriptive layer: they are made accidentally and can be sound or visual. They are born around the narrator, since the presented literary world was identified with the space of living. The biographical element introduces another argument in favor of 'poor aesthetics' or 'attic aesthetics'. It proves to be the project of social coexistence based on the rule of voluntary giving and on recycling seen as a way of circulation of things. The attitude to objects stems from the post-war experience of the lack of various things. Objects in Bialoszewski's texts are treated as cultural signs
