20 years, or 5 linear metres
A retrospective view, individual creative attitudes, artists connected with the Chair of Painting of the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice. From 8 May at BWA Katowice.
Five linear metres is the hypothetical dimension of the area dedicated to each creative statement. These proposed few metres impose a significant limitation on the creative freedom on the one hand, and on the other hand attempt to introduce order and become a method to reach an interesting compromise in the dialogue of so many artistic articulations. We must remember that behind each fragment of this colourful mosaic there is an individual history with all its circumstances, resulting in the presented work.
The artists participating in the exhibition are teachers connected with the Chair from its origins until our strange pandemic times. This difficult infected period has caused many doubts as to the sense of creating an exhibition, however we have decided to go forward and, as much as possible and with increasing courage, to fill the fears with hope.
