Where is PERMAFO? 30.11.12–04.02.13 Wernisaż: 30.11.12 (piątek), godz. 19 Vernissage: 30.11.12 (Friday), 7 PM

Young, vivid and unpretentious art of Wrocław of the 70s has resisted both musealization and academic discourses of art history. The artists of PERMAFO – as other Wrocław galleries of the 70s – didn’t think about making history, but about changing their lives and enjoying life. The PERMAFO gallery was founded after the famous symposium Wrocław ’70 considered to be a founding demonstration of conceptual art. After years a famous Poznań based critic has meanly said, that it is the inertia of Wrocław infrastructure what become a quantum leap of popularising conceptualism. Because almost none of the symposium projects has been realized.

That’s why the history of modern art in Wrocław is yet to be written.

An exhibition Where is PERMAFO? is the Wrocław Contemporary Museum’sattempt to tell the founders’ myth of the young, open city, through the figures of two artists Natalia LL and Andrzej Lachowicz. A beautiful and deeply in love couple makes a space and atmosphere and creates art anew – a surprising, even impossible combination of conceptual art with pop-art. In the splice of art and joie de vivre, tiny revelations appear that change the confines imposed by The People’s Republic of Poland into absurd usurpation. Soon, people appear in PERMAFO, without divisions into artists, scientists, dilettantes and devotees, discussions till dawn and certainty that all “begun in Wrocław” – modernity, art and life in a fresh context and mutual relation. The PERMAFO artists chose democratic means like photo cameras. One of the main ideas of PERMAFO – permanent registration – was completely transparent towards life. It’s life attitude that was becoming a form. Participation in art, with the preference of participating, not the work itself, caused the work become a trace of real experience and that (an not the aesthetic form) protected against ideology. Is it possible to recreate after years the tameless, free spirit of the 70s, the paradoxical connection of avant-garde and counter-culture? Come and see Where is PERMAFO? in Wrocław Contemporary Museum
