SPRING ASPirations 2016
Ireneusz Walczak „Simulacrum?”
Professor at the Chair of Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice; painting is his chief artistic activity. He is interested in the psychoanalysis and condition of contemporary men as well as questions on identity. He also deals with the problems of social and cultural affiliation.
The author built the narration on the canvas of his three latest cycles: My house is my language, Multikulti, Loading, please wait…. Some pictures were constructed as boxes releasing the story from its two-dimensional constraint.
The exhibition was accompanied by a catalogue published by the Silesian Culture Centre in Nakło Śląskie.
