Thursdays with the Collection. Karolina Kowalska
28.05.2020 at 11 am– 7 pm
In May and June, Thursdays with the Collection brings Rave, a video by Karolina Kowalska. It is a compilation of The Wedding, a motion picture by Andrzej Wajda, which was an adaptation of Stanisław Wyspiański’s play of the same name. The artist has selected the most expressive shots, speeding up the images and replaying sequences against a soundtrack that compounds the tension. The artist aimed to distil energy to an almost intolerable degree – and has succeeded in creating an experience that one wants to repeat again and again.
Karolina Kowalska – photography, installation, video. Her works are often site-specific and projects carried out in public space. The artist often employs found materials and reproduces photographs, films and music, collecting data. Her projects reveal an interest in the mechanisms of perception, the potential for the manipulation of photography and the creation of illusion.
The screenings take place throughout the day during the Museum’s opening hours: 11 am – 7 pm. Admission to the MOCAK Collection exhibitions is free of charge on Thursday.
Viewings will be also available every Thursday throughout May and June between 8 pm and 8.15 pm as a live stream on the Museum’s YouTube channel. Link to the broadcast available here.
The film lasts approx. five minutes (it will be replayed three time). You can also see the video on MOCAK Instagram TV @mocak_krakow on the same days from 7 pm.
