EXHIBITION FOR YOU: VIOLA TYCZ, „ANOREXIS I”
The current Exhibition for You has been created by art lovers for art lovers. It has been prepared by three curators aided by the Wrocław Contemporary Museum team. In the first stage, nine works were selected from the collections of Wrocław Contemporary Museum and the Lower Silesian Society for the Encouragement of Fine Arts. After that, a social media vote was held, in which the public chose Viola Tycz’s Anorexis I.
Viola Tycz has graduated from the Faculty of Graphics of the Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław. A recipient of a scholarship from the Pilar Juncos and Joan Miro Foundation, she has won many prestigious competitions in Poland and abroad. She is a well-established multimedia artist who tackles both current and universal social problems.
Although the Anorexis I series was created in 2006, it has not lost its relevance and continues to invite reflection. It pertains not only to the demands of the modern world on women, but also to existential themes in general, such as broadly understood hunger in times of a consumerist lifestyle and the development of technology.
Four works from the series will be shown at MWW. The Museum’s austere interior will feature two-metre-high full-figure representations of emaciated women made on galvanised sheets of metal using the intaglio printing method. The exhibition can be viewed while sitting comfortably in an armchair. However, the observation will be bidirectional – when entering the exhibition, expect dozens of eyes turned on you….
