Art in diversity

Art in diversity

The Month of Performance Art was an experiment which, for the first time in Kalisz art history, confronted the local community with ephemeral art. This challenge was undertaken by the curator of the event - Małgorzata Kaźmierczak - the director of the City Art Gallery of Kalisz. The four performers invited drew their audience into different artistic worlds, yet sharing certain common elements.

Faux painting. Performer's Objects

Faux painting. Performer's Objects

Exhibitions of performer’s objects in galleries are very rare. The reason is quite simple: the objects are not exactly artworks.

AWAKENING

Karina Dzieweczyńska invited me to participate in a project entitled Awakening in Świecie. I didn’t know anything about Świecie at that time.
