Zofia Kulik: Splendour of Myself V
Opening: Saturday, April 05th, 6-9 pm
Lindenstr. 35, 10969 Berlin
At long last, after her participation at the Documenta XII the polish artist Zofia Kulik received international attention. As many documentation photos have proven, her large-scale photomontages fascinated the public. Her monumental black and white constructions, consisting of a multitude of smaller motifs, connect like a puzzle to reveal the whole image.
The ZAK | BRANICKA Gallery dedicates a monographic exhibition to the photography of Zofia Kulik. These selected works give a representative insight in her oeuvre. For the first time the artist reveals the technical process behind her work, the guarded secret of her large-scale tableau’s: the stencils that she uses during the creation process will be exhibited alongside the finished work. The focus of the exhibition is the monumental work entitled, “Splendour of Myself V” – elements from which are singled out and their meaning described in an accompanying “guide” – an exemplary key to the manifold iconographic and art-historical references in Kulik’s work.
