EXHIBITIONS IN POLAND
Nonconventional, nonverbal, with a unique background story. The Bare Belly turns out to be a story of the illusory sense of safety. As soon as we think that we have figured out this whole mindfulness business, that everything fits perfectly into its place, that the time has finally come for us to lie down and breathe, feel and be yourself… well, little did we know.
A solo exhibition by collective Slavs and Tatars, Friendship of Nations: Polish Shi’ite Showbiz, is on view until April 30, 2023, at the MHKA, Antwerp.
The Edward Dwurnik Foundation unveils its new headquarters at 25 Naczowska Street in Warsaw’s Sadyba neighborhood on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of his birth. We cordially invite you to the exhibition’s four-day opening.
EXHIBITIONS IN POLAND
“The exhibition of Olaf Brzeski, entitled “Wish” contains, in its ideological layer, thoughts that, to some extent, concern each of us: the desire for good things to happen at home, in the family, in our private plans, as well as in the world as a whole, both the one shaped by people and the one over which man has no influence.”
(Polski) Polecamy odcinek podcastu Audycje Kulturalne z Łukaszem Gorczycą na temat fotografii Zofii Rydet i jej aktualnej wystawy w galerii Raster zatytułowanej “Nieskończoność Dalekich Dróg”.
We are pleased to report that in 2022 works by Olaf Brzeski, Dominika Olszowy, and Slavs and Tatars joined important public collections.
The first individual show at Raster by Alicja Pakosz (born 1996) is a narrative woven around the figure of a toxic landscape—obsessively returning as a classic motif from the history of painting and also a vision evoking fear, an underlying anxiety. An image appearing in the least expected moment like hallucinations pressing under the eyelids. Something morbid and not entirely benign. The artist plays out this story like film frames in a series of paintings in two different scales and a fully-formed diorama.
Zofia Rydet (1911–1997), creator of the iconic Sociological Record and the fantastic World of Feelings and Imagination, was an artist gifted with a sense for observing the entropy of the world around her. This exceptional photographic perspective is revealed in all its power in the series Endlessly Distant Roads, executed in 1980. In the exhibition at Raster, we present a selection of 40 photographs from this unusual and rarely shown collection.
2023 ART FAIRS
At the Felix Art Fair 2023 Raster presented works of Karolina Jabłońska, Emilia Kina, Aneta Grzeszykowska, Slavs and Tatars, Milena Korolczuk, Zbigniew Rogalski.
Chill. Cold prevails outside. Snow has even fallen, and when we open our lips, our breath turns into clouds of fog, quickly rising in the wintry air. When it blows harder, locks of hair stick to the face. Snowflakes fall over the head, hair, eyebrows, and then slowly melt under the fading body heat.
The Edward Dwurnik Foundation’s priority project is to create an online catalogue of all Edward Dwurnik’s works on canvas, on paper, and in other techniques and media. The catalogue will contain a reproduction of every work, along with basic information about each.
On Saturday, 17 December, at 2:00 pm, we invite you to Raster for a meeting with Karolina Jabłońska, who will lead a tour of her exhibition and present her newly published book Made-Up Story. For the occasion Karolina has prepared a special limited series of works on paper, which will be offered for sale along with the book.
2022 ART FAIRS
At the NADA 2022 art fair in Miami, Raster presented works of Emilia Kina, Janek Simon and Paulina Stasik.
