Live Stream of the Talk “Waiting for… (Archaeology of an Idea)”
This time, the renowned Polish artist Mirosław Bałka and senior curator of “Tate Liverpool” Kasia Redzisz will participate in the talk to discuss their work with “Otwock”, a project exploring relations between art, place and locality. The event is organised by the “kim?” Contemporary Art Centre.
The presentations will be open for questions from the audience. The event will be held English with translation in Latvian. Entrance is free.
“Otwock” is described as a place with twofold meaning. It refers to the hometown of the sculptor, Mirosław Bałka, and the house of his childhood which he has turned into a studio. The studio triggered a reflection on the relations between art and place in which it is made. The town has become an expanded space of work.
“Otwock” is an exercise in creating a subjective description of the place. Invited artists, curators and writers work with the found context. The adopted method is best described by the notions of site specific and site responsive.
The artists working in “Otwock” so far include: Lara Almarcegui, Marc Camille Chaimowicz, Tacita Dean, Jos de Gruyter and Harald Thys, Katharina Marszewski, Anna Molska, Charlotte Moth, Błażej Pindor, Luc Tuymans and Aleksandra Waliszewska.
“Otwock” is realised by Mirosław Bałka and “Open Art Projects” and is curated by Kasia Redzisz.
