Honorata Martin wins Spojrzenia

Honorata Martin has won the 2017 Spojrzenia (Views) Deutsche Bank Award. The most important competition for young Polish artists is organized by DB and Zachęta – National Gallery of Art.
Martin is a painter, performer and multimedia artist whose works we've shown at Raster on the occasion of a group show Society is Mean. For the Views contest exhibition she has prepared a moving work in the form of a wigwam built out of things left in the apartment of her grandmother that has recently passed away.

As the artist says herself, "I don’t want to produce new objects. I want to build a sensible model made of things which lost their meaning, a model reminding of those who lost their foundation of security and permanence. I want to face issues I feel overshadowed with since I was a child. I wonder if such attachment to things still makes sense in the modern world, or will various forms of nomadism dominate in the near future."
