In-depth Reception / January
Education, Teenagers, Adults, Seniors
(Wednesday), 4–6 p.m., admission included in the ticket price
In-depth Reception is a warm-up before visiting the exhibition on your own, intended to encourage you to ask questions and carefully look at the featured works. Let yourself savour art and feel free to share your observations and conclusions, however surprising they may be. Unhurriedly, without crowds, with friends or with somebody you’ve just met.
Once a month on selected Wednesdays, our mediators will be waiting for you by works of their choice, ready to discuss them and answer your questions. During the conversations, we will carefully look at the works and think about what feelings and emotions they evoke in us, so that in the future we will be able to explore the museum more consciously and with an open mind.
Marta Mularczuk will talk about the installation Five Arrows presented at Kama Sokolnicka’s exhibition Glare (level 0)
How to interpret the source of Kama Sokolnicka’s inspiration – the parable of the Buddha’s enlightenment? Can a passive attitude be the right one? What feelings are triggered by the arrows, slowly rotating on an almost invisible golden thread?
Karolina Jaworska will talk about Jerzy Truszkowski’s work entitled Nihilistic Somnambulist Press. Amerussian Flag featured at the exhibition Private Mythologies. Marta’s Birthday (level 4)
In 1984, Ronald Reagan was running for a second term as president of the USA. His campaign video shows a bear wandering through a forest. In the final scene, a man appears and the bear takes a step back. The video, just like Truszkowski’s work, both encapsulate the international situation at that time. Let’s find out what else we can see in Amerussian Flag.
Anna Krukowska will talk about the work Cursed presented at Puck Verkade’s exhibition (level 3)
The work Cursed is permeated by a sense of imprisonment that many of us may have experienced, especially in recent times. During the meeting, we will visit the spooky house presented by the artist and reflect on the psychological consequences of the pandemic.
Jagoda Forycka will talk about Andrzej Klimczak-Dobrzaniecki’s Untitled work showed at the exhibition What After / What For. Works from the DTZSP Collection (level 5)
What was the function of the buildings depicted by Klimczak-Dobrzaniecki in his gouaches and what do they represent? How are they connected with the main question posed by the exhibition – what will be left after us?
