„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.

Illegibility: The Contexts of Script

What do we feel when faced with such situations: irritation, powerlessness, helplessness? And what if this…
