Tuesdays with the Collection: Ewa Zarzycka
25.09.2018 at 11 am – 7 pm
Tuesdays with the Collection is a two-year-long project: each Tuesday – the day on which the entry to the Museum is free – selected video works from the MOCAK Collection will be shown in the audiovisual room (11 am – 7 pm). Currently, our Collection comprised 161 video works, of which at least half have never been shown during the exhibitions of the Collection.
In September and October, as part of the year-round project Tuesdays with the Collection, we present Ewa Zarzycka’s work Videonotebooks (2013).
Since her high school years, the artist has kept notes on her work, which double up as a journal and sketchbook. She uses them to work on her performative actions. In 2013, these notes also became the basis for her video performance which commented on her earlier work. The artist presents the contents of her notebooks, reproducing conversations, thoughts, events and feelings. This work is a story of the emotional, intimate aspect of the creative process. The viewer is not just an observer, but also the artist’s confidant.
