Vienna: Kręcicki, Polaczek
June 5, 2014 - June 14, 2014
Any Resemblance, Tomasz Kręcicki, Cyryl Polaczek
Gallery AA Collections, Vienna
opening 05.06, 7:00 p.m.
Exhibition Any Resemblance refers to a sentence we all well know from many films. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental. Therefore, the concept of the exposition focuses on the fiction of art and its representation. Both artists, Tomasz Kręcicki and Cyryl Polaczek, presenting their pieces share identical passion for work. However, despite the years spent together in prof. Andrzej Bednarczyk’s atelier, they hold a quite different approach to the image. Why in this case are we still, incidentally, searching for similarities between their canvases? What makes us look again and again, as well in galleries as on daily basis, for connections and convergence? It is just a trick our mind is playing on us or is there a thin thread of connection between those two artists?
The exhibition is a review of the newest Kręcicki’s and Polaczek’s achievements. In the addition to individual works, also effects of joint actions prepared for this display will be shown. This unique compilation of their own and common pieces will create an opportunity to present three different languages coming from one source. Moreover, Any resemblance will be the first show of Polish students at the AA Collections gallery.
The exposition is realised thanks to the support of the Adam Mickiewicz Institute and MS Logistics Partner Silesia.
