ŻAK | BRANICKA is delighted to present the exhibition Words and Colors with works by Jarosław Kozłowski – the artist’s first solo exhibition and likewise the beginning of his cooperation with the gallery.
Kozłowski is a legend in Polish conceptual art. From the outset, he has been dealing with concepts of space, time, logics, and language in his work. In the upcoming exhibition, he will be presenting a selection of works from the past five decades. The dry, unemotional title reflects the analytical strategy characteristic for conceptual art, which shows a predilection for narrowing itself down to the naming of facts. The reduction of means indeed offers ample visual appeal, and the content of the exhibition is surprising: its focus is on color and the perception thereof, as was already a common theme in art history one hundred years ago. The prejudices associated with the notion of conceptual art are thus ironically refuted by Kozlowski.
