EXHIBITIONS IN EUROPE
Przemek Matecki’s solo show at Platán gallery in Budapest is a variation on one particular motif, or a painting procedure rather, used in his works: a multilayer colorful pattern created using a palette knife.
EXHIBITIONS IN WARSAW
Matecki’s first solo show in Zacheta – National Gallery of Art in Warsaw (curated by Maria Rubersz & Wojciech Kozłowski) was at the same time his biggest exhibition in a public art institution so far.
The exhibition explores the lyrical and political properties of matter that co-created certain legends of industry – and its demise. Aluminum – a lightweight, non-corrosive metal – appears in a range of forms, both as an artistic medium and an industrial material, a ready-made of sorts. Its artistic legacy is intrinsically connected to the idea of depersonalizing the act of creation.
A catchily entitled show in Progress Gallery in Paris, ‘Isn’t it Good to be Lost in the Wood’ presents new works on paper by Przemek Matecki and Pierre Ardouvin.
