“(Land)Slip”, an exhibition by Agata Siniarska, the fourth event organised as part of the “Prototypes” project based on the collection of Muzeum Sztuki, will examine material aspects of creating works of art and their further fate that often escape our visual perception, as well as the twofold role thereof: as an archive of processes involved in memory and forgetting and as the ability to preserve and destroy structures of the existing world.
WHEN: November 20, 2020
Artists create worlds. Let us reach beyond the world of visual arts for a moment, to Ursula K. Le Guin, who in her novels sent us, her readers, to planets with different customs and relationships that existed (exclusively?) in our imagination – knew this very well. In one of her essays, she wrote: “To make a new world, you start with an old one, certainly. To find a world, maybe you have to have lost one. Maybe you have to be lost. The dance of renewal, the dance that made the world, was always danced here at the edge of things, on the brink…” Where is this “here” and “now”? Perhaps at this point it is right below our feet. Isn’t this the abyss that we are staring into right now? The mass extinction of species, climate annihilation, and other gradual or abrupt cataclysms that herald the real end of the world, such as humans and ecosystems disappearing from areas that will be soon impossible to inhabit because of global warming.
