Libera rubbing against sculptures

The 50th anniver­sary of the Xavery Dunikow­ski Museum of Sculp­ture was celebrated by an extraor­dinary exhibition entitled “Zbigniew Libera: To nie moja wina, że otarła się o mnie ta rzeźba” (“Zbigniew Libera: It’s Not My Fault That This Sculp­ture Rubbed Against Me”). Libera, in a char­ming and humorous way, described his role in this project as “truffle hog”. The artist has picked a few dozen of sculp­tures (mostly from the 20th cen­tury) from the Museum’s storage and created a special series of 9 drawings com­men­ting on his selec­tion; they not only offer new inter­pretation hints but also unveil a “behind the scenes” stories from the life of Polish sculp­tors. The exhibition—an apocryphal and sen­suous jour­ney through the over­looked histories of modern Polish sculpture—was curated by Joanna Turowicz.
