VIOLA TYCZ. ANOREXIS – POINTS OF VIEW. MEETING WITH THE ARTIST
We would like to invite you to a meeting with artist Viola Tycz marking the opening of the next Exhibition for You. The December edition of the project has been prepared by non-professional curators aided by the museum educator and the online community, who have selected works from the Anorexis I series – dark, disturbing and thought-provoking. Viola Tycz, a Wrocław-based artist, has been exploring the impact of contemporary culture and digital technology on our lives for years. This is evident in both the subject of her artistic practice and form of her works. Anorexis I provokes questions about the role of the body in culture, about the gaze – our own as well as collective, resulting from constant observation of each other through various media; about the contradictory social demands of simultaneous asceticism and prosperity; and, finally, about appearances – are the characters in Anorexis I revealing the truth about themselves, or is it mystification intended confuse the viewer?
Discussing these multiple meanings is one of the goals of the meeting, during which the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions directly to the artist and curators.
