In the past, art served the purpose of bolstering political power –today it is a tool for questioning and holding authority to account. Once, artists used their talent to support the political system of the day. Today, they have become perspicacious and critical observers of the political scene and are active participants in opposition.
The project was initiated in 2016. At that time, the artist invited Warsaw residents from different cultural backgrounds to donate blood. The collected blood went to the Polish blood bank. The action was documented. The exhibition shows the third, Krakow-based and expanded version of this project.
The show includes – alongside the poet’s collages – copies of Polish editions of Szymborska’s poems, a selection of translations and monographs devoted to her, poetic posters, and her private memorabilia, and portraits of Szymborska.
Works in which the relationship with the surroundings they are in plays a significant role and provides a semantic clinch are usually called installations. Artists employ the exhibition space available or design it themselves. In this presentation, we show 14 works that form a relationship with a neutral environment.
The artist called his works Concept-Shapes. He sometimes invested works and punctuation marks with a spatial form, combining an intellectual experience with that of the senses, thus revealing the diffusion of the two.
