WRO 2015 Résumé exhibition – other view
Art Mediators’ Comments: Shuai Cheng Pu, Counsciousness Spin Project
Art Mediators’ Comments: Jacob Tonski, Balance from Within
Art Mediators’ Comments: Marek Deka, Nothing More
Nothing more – that’s what the work is all about. It’s been perfectly planned and made. It looks exquisitely at the WRO Biennale exhibition in the University Library and has its peculiar, individual character. Functioning at times, it needs electricity to run. It is given expression through color, texture corrosion, or right proportion of the components.
Art Mediators’ Comments: Alessandro Fonte, Unisono
Art Mediators’ Comments: Cécile Beau + Nicolas Montgermont, Radiography
Art Mediators’ Comments: Quayola, Captives
The series “Captives” refers to Michelangelo’s sculptures from the series “Prigioni”. In his work, Quayola focuses on exploring the possibilities of shaping body and form. His works – created in the Renaissance “nonfinite” technique – are an attempt to capture the moment of transformation of the incoherent solid material into the naturalistic sculpture.
Art Mediators’ Comments: Kay Walkowiak, Minimal Vandalism
