exhibition as part of the Wrocław Drawing Triennial 2022

What do different worlds look like in the same exhibition space? The answer can be found during the Wrocław Drawing Triennial 2022 in early April. It’s enough to go to BWA Wrocław Główny gallery to see the exhibition “WORLD(S)”.

Honza Zamojski, visual artist, creator of installations, author of artbooks, and in this case curator of the exhibition “WORLD(S)” proposes an intriguing concept for the exhibition. It is closely related to the architecture of BWA Wrocław Główny gallery and its two wings of exhibition spaces. One part is occupied by the light world and the other by the dark world. These are not oppositions. Lightness and darkness of the rooms do not symbolize anything. Nor do they set themselves at opposite poles of discussion. The two worlds are different, but with similar parameters and composed according to similar principles. In each wing of the gallery, the same artists will present works at identical points in the space of each room.

The differences and similarities between the worlds can only be seen through small shifts in meaning and contrasts. Sometimes these contrasts result from the subject matter of the works, other times from their form. Some works play with the illusion of mirror reflection, some with the concepts of negative and positive.

“Where is drawing in all this? – Zamojski asks. – Drawing always appears where words are lacking, as a universal method of communication. Drawing responds immediately with accurate commentary and is economically egalitarian – after all, all you need is a pencil and a piece of paper to draw something, write something, communicate something.”

Thus, in the exhibition, drawing is present in every form, often positioning itself as a point of contact in communication between different and parallel worlds. Detached from the burden of formal solutions, it becomes words, emotions and emancipation.
