Basel: Pola Dwurnik
February 12, 2015 - April 11, 2015
POLA DWURNIK: Alcina’s Island, Opening: 12.02.2015 at 6:30 pm
Pola Dwurnik (born in 1979 in Warsaw, Poland) is a Berlin-based visual artist working mainly with oil painting, various drawing media, and collage. She has been recognized for her large-format realistic, yet very oneiric, oil paintings featuring various female charachters. Dwurnik brought many of them together in her 2013 artbook Girl on Canvas, where they were accompanied by narrative stories and interpretations written by more than thirty authors.
The exhibition at the Galerie Idea-Fixa will mark Pola Dwurnik’s comeback to the city of Basel. In 2004 and 2005, she was an artist-in-residence at the Stiftung Laurenz-Haus. In 2007, Christoph Merian Verlag published the booklet Living in Basel with Dwurnik’s cartoon-like drawings depicting the city and its habitants.
