Art Event, Exhibition

Vernissage whitout Pictures

Last Sunday I had a vernissage of my exhibition at the Polish Library in Amsterdam at Keizersgracht 174. Actually, the first time I decided to tell my audience about my art, I’m sorry, the second time. I spoke for the first time four years ago at Leeszaal West in Rotterdam. Anyway, it was the first time I did it with great pleasure, relaxed and passed, what I wanted to convey. I think I’ve just matured to such presentations. I owe this special evening to the public – friends and strangers who came to see what I did. Ania, my friend and translator, translated every sentence from Polish to Dutch so that everyone could understand what I’m talking about.

Interestingly, probably nobody took pictures, I also forgot about them. In times when every step is documented, it is amazing. Everyone sat and just listened. Maybe I saw one person with a phone that tried something, but I do not even know who it was. Does not matter. I will remember this evening because of its atmosphere and delightful meeting.

The second interesting thing is that for the purposes of the exhibition I pulled Lady Kangaroo out of the closet. In fact, I have already finished this project, but the exhibition made me realize that it is the LADY that has more potential than my current graphics. What I do now is quite heavy in reception. People, however, like light, bright, joyous art. I also felt a lot easier when I looked at all the crazy, unusual, colorful linocuts with Lady Kangaroo.

One of the most outstanding artists has died today. It is not for me to judge who she was for contemporary art. I know for sure that Magdalena Abakanowicz was one of the few artists whose art moved me deeply.

Are there still artists that are able to create such magical but on the same time so legible art about peole?

Thank you Magda.

RIP
