Small Sculptural Forms

BWA Warszawa

19 Jun 201610 Sep 2016

The concept behind the show “Small Sculptural Forms” is the fruit of an observation of how works of art, sculpture and other three-dimensional objects in particular, function beyond the gallery space. What becomes of a sculpture when it travels outside of the white cube of the gallery into the hands of a private collector? How does it fit into its new spatial context? How do different works of art interact with one another in this space – and with other, conventional objects? Does the difference between the realm of art and of the everyday become more defined – or does it, perhaps, disappear altogether?
Why, after all, do we surround ourselves with objects that, at the outset, don’t have any other function besides an aesthetic one? A cupboard designed by Adam Adach provides an introduction of sorts, full of trinkets and talismans brought over by the artist from all over the world. In a similar vein, artists Katarzyna Przezwańska and Sławomir Pawszak were invited to shape the arrangement of the exhibition to create a single, buzzing, heterogeneous whole. The duo also created a set of cupboard-platforms to hold and exhibit all the art objects taking part in the show.
