Zagreb: “Arton Review #2019”
November 19, 2019
Łukasz Jastrubczak ‘Telepatia’ / ‘Telephaty’ 2014
ARTON REVIEW #2019
Arton Review is a review of Polish experimental film and video art organised since 2014 by the Arton Foundation. The initiative is based on our archive of Polish avant-garde art of the 1970s. Its contents provide inspiration for artists of the younger generations.
This edition is focused on the legacy of two Polish artists: Jolanta Marcolla and Paweł Kwiek.
Addressing her own work experience with the medium of film and television, Laura Pawela created a film that engages in a dialogue with a co-founder of the Workshop of the Film Form, Paweł Kwiek, and his work ‘The Telephone and I’ from 1972.
In her film ‘The False Mirror, Amanda Wieczorek gives a synthetic punchline to the oeuvre of Jolanta Marcolla with a special focus on the artist’s texts and works created during her television internship in 1975.
‘Conversation with the God’ became the starting point for Kwiek’s collaboration with Łukasz Jastrubczak. The latter’s work ‘Telepathy’ (2014) documents an event which took place at the beginning of October 2014 on the outskirts of Warsaw. During a car journey Paweł Kwiek and Łukasz Jastrubczak attempted to communicate by means of telepathy.
The projections will be accompanied with a public talk with Marika Kuźmicz, head of Arton Fondation and curator of the film festival Arton Review, and artists Laura Pawela and Łukasz Jastrubczak.
This project is co-financed by the Capital City of Warsaw
