You are cordially invited to the exhibition opening on Friday, November 1, 2013 from 6 to 9 pm.
ŻAK | BRANICKA is delighted to present the first solo exhibition of the artist Natalia Stachon entitled The Problem of the Calm. The young artist investigates the relationships of space and matter, sensory impressions and experience, form and surface in her works. In the process, the site of art morphs into a stage, habitual conceptions of image are overruled or reinterpreted.
The eponymous work is an installation conceived specially for ŻAK | BRANICKA that completely takes up the space. Stainless steel cables, with different formations of glass insulators and stainless steel elements hanging from their ends, stretch from one wall to another. The materials are reminiscent of high-voltage power lines; defunctionalized as weights they generate a new sort of tension, in which the cables regroup to form a space-encompassing design.
“Places find me. And they change me. It is always a journey with an unknown outcome.”
