Liverpool: Edward Krasiński

October 21, 2016 - March 5, 2017

EDWARD KRASIŃSKI

‘I come up with an idea, and then bang! There’s no knowing what the result will be.’ 

Edward Krasiński 1997

 

Sculptor, painter and creator of artistic installations and happenings, Edward Krasiński was one of the most significant Eastern European artists of the 20th century.  In this first UKretrospective, learn more about Krasiński’s humorous personality, great sense of irony and how this influenced the art he created.

Born in Poland, Krasiński had an experimental approach to art and exhibition making.  Using everyday objects in unconventional ways, Krasiński’s work challenged traditional art forms and blurred the distinction between art and everyday life.

Highlights include Krasiński’s suspended sculptures that often appear gravity defying in their combination of invisible wires, visual puns and trickery, an exploration of the artist’s preoccupation with blue adhesive tape together with re-stagings of his major Interventions.
