Premiere screenings of two loudly-commented movies from 2015 will take place at 10 Chancery Lane Gallery in Hong Kong: “Walser”, a cinematic debut by Zbigniew Libera who wrote and directed it, and “Performer”, a feature film inspired by Oskar Dawicki, starring… Oskar Dawicki playing Oskar Dawicki (dir. by Łukasz Ronduda and Maciej Sobieszczański).
MEET THE ARTIST
A special meeting with the authors of Raster’s newest book—Oskar Dawicki’s monography “I’M SORRY”
DAWICKI IN ACTION
“Performer”, a full-lenght film inspired by the person and art of Oskar Dawicki, premiered n England in Tate Modern. For the occasion Dawicki prepared another special performance from the never-ending “I’m sorry” cycle.
The new book ‘Kino-Sztuka. Zwrot kinematograficzny w polskiej sztuce współczesnej’ – loosely translated as ‘Cinema-Art. The Cinematographic Turn in Polish Contemporary Art’ – by Jakub Marmurek and Łukasz Ronduda is a first serious attempt at mapping out this new tendency in Polish art: for visual artists to transmute into feature films directors.
EXHIBITIONS IN POLAND
‘Lacrimosa’ – an extraordinary installation by Oskar Dawicki at Galeria Labirynt in Lublin.
‘Performer’ (2015, directed by Łukasz Ronduda, Maciej Sobieszczański) – a full-lenght film inspired by the person and art of Oskar Dawicki (starring himself!) won the Think: Film Award at the Berlinale Festival!
Rafal Bujnowski and Oskar Dawicki simultaneously presen their own interpretation of a tough relation between an artist and his art in Gdansk.
Pioneering and scandalous, an attempt at description and interpretation of an artist’s work through a fictionalised, biographical novel.
Oskar Dawicki’s “Performer” is a story about himself as a fictional character. The exhibition, combining various disciplines – art, film and literature – is a unique enterprise where the performer, Dawicki’s alter ego, appears in different incarnations, constantly examining the boundary between work of art and reality.
