New exhibitions catalogues
Catalogues accompanying Rune Eraker's Uprooted and Wisława Szymborska's Collages exhibitions are now available.
Rune Eraker. Uprooted catalogue presents a series of black-and-white photographs titled The Smell of Longing. The photographs, which have been taken since 1988, document Eraker's travels in 22 countries, ravished by war, political repression and hunger. They are an attempt to address the reasons why people are forced to abandon their roots and seek shelter in a foreign country. Documenting everyday situations from their lives against the backdrop of tragedy and war, the artist focuses on the causes of exile.
The other publication, Wisława Szymborska. Collages, presents a less-known part of the poet's work: postcard-size collages, which had been sent to her friends over many years. The texts on these minimalist compositions have been written by Małgorzata Baranowska, Maria Anna Potocka, Michał Rusinek. The catalogue also includes an interview with Ryszard Krynicki. The publication comprises nearly 150 photographic reproductions of Wisława Szymborska's works.
