Biometry | Entropia Gallery

„Biometry and Other Stories” is a performative essay composed of a series of visual and textual episodes. The issues raised refer to the relation between architecture of the body, language and space. The method of the artist’s work is based on a drawing-and-verbal dialogue with the environment and herself. The key performance points located within the gallery space will create a diagram, which will form visible traces of the artist’s movements and narrative.

Illegibility. Palimpsests

Illegibility. Palimpsests

The phenomenon of illegibility and the accumulation of layers of script is the subject of the new temporary exhibition at the Pan Tadeusz Museum. Most of us have experienced writing down a note which is later illegible, even to ourselves; it has occurred to almost everyone that we failed to decipher someone else’s scribbling, or have come across a system of signs that we couldn’t understand. How do we feel…

Bodygraphy | Wozownia Art Gallery

Bodygraphy | Wozownia Art Gallery

Illegibility: The Contexts of Script

Illegibility: The Contexts of Script

In the sphere of script, the phenomenon of illegibility forms part of our everyday life. Most of us can remember jotting a note that nobody, including ourselves, could later decode; most of us have experienced the impossibility of deciphering someone else’s scribbles, or an encounter with a sign system that we could not understand. What do we feel when faced with such situations: irritation, powerlessness, helplessness? And what if this…
