Olaf Brzeski’s art residency at International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in New York is coming to an end. If you’re not based in NYC you can see Brzeski’s short film impression from his studio below and if you’re lucky enough to be there you are invited to see the effects of his latest endeavours between April 25th and 27th during Open Studios. Brzeski announces his presentation with a truly vivid description: “This will be a chance to see an interior portrait of the stupendous sword swallower Abbey Hay vel Pepsin. You will be witness to a rare moment in which the surrealism of the circus side show becomes, right before your eyes, genuine magic, revealing the intimacy and the great power of the human body. That same day you will also witness the lion captured within a moment of vast importance for the species – as he attains self-awareness”.
