Curator guided tour: "Private Mythologies. Marta's Birthday"

Od 08.12.2019 do 08.12.2019

Private Mythologies is a long-term project intended to create a permanent space for the international collection of contemporary art of Wrocław Contemporary Museum, which tends towards personal narratives and intentions that can acquire various forms, but each time they stem from a passion to describe and analyse the world – and to fix it. At the same time, the assumptions of the project pose questions about the heritage of the neo-avant-garde thought, which is so important for Wrocław Contemporary Museum.

The exhibition titled Marta's Birthday, which initiates the Private Mythologies project, is intended to study these relations. It departs from a linear arrangement in order to emphasise the right to artistically express that which is individual, intimate or private, although socially determined.

An important part of the exhibition is installation entitled Concrete Poetry by Stanisław Dróżdż. The presentation is a reconstruction of Stanisław Dróżdż's installation shown at the Foksal Gallery in 2002, which has been adapted to the museum space and made in accordance with the artist's original guidelines. Over 10 km of one-millimetre line connects points marked according to a special system on the walls, ceiling and floor. The space remains inaccessible, but at the same time its physical aspect becomes material.

On Sunday, 8 December, at 3 PM, curator Piotr Lisowski will guide us through the exhibition Private Mythologies. Marta's Birthday and the installation Stanisław Dróżdż. Concrete Poetry.

Entry to the exhibition tour is free. We look forward to welcoming you!     -- Private Mythologies. Marta's Birthday more information >>>
