Xawery Wolski - "Portrait"

6.00 p.m. Thursday, 12 May 2011

An exhibition of installations, objects and drawings by Xawery Wolski - an artist living and working in Mexico. His artistic creations include sculptures, bas reliefs and multi-element installations - all inspired by history and prehistory.

The solo-show of Xawery Wolski is commitment to be a non-chronological review of his artistic production, this with a double intention. In one hand to display - in the context of their country of origin - a selection of artworks that patents the reflection or speech which has guided his artistic language in recent years. As a second intention to do a recognition of his artistic practice and of himself through his artwork. For this reason the exhibition is presented as a portrait, a word game where the viewer can both deal with the description of the individual artist, depicted through his artwork, as well as Wolski might visualize himself from the outside, this in order to return to deal with those thoughts which he wants to talk about further.

What constitutes and gives meaning to concepts such as time, materiality, embodiment, accumulation, and the strings attached to these concepts into the physical world, are questions that from the beginning has been raised by different philosophical doctrines. Wolski Xawery using various media, from highly industrial materials to subtle and obsessive drawings, seeks to continue with reflections that cannot be left to the realm of moral philosophy or ethics, but of artistic introspection and even meditative.
