An idea hidden in things

Buildings, edifices, objects. Anchored in our memory, in our thinking about cities, outskirts, in images of different journeys, in perception of a rural road, a sea shore, a terrace, a backyard. The roughness of concrete, the smell of timber, the vermillion of brick, the colour of neon. A house, a palace, a factory, a station. An arbour in the park, a gateway, a swimming pool, a springboard, a gasoline station. Light falling onto the floor, walls, the asphalt of the road. Encoded views, landscapes complemented with architecture.

An idea hidden in things

August 2011

see exhibition

‘I have forgotten one can be so young’

- says Homo Faber, the eponymous character from the Max Frisch’s novel, seeing Sabeth – a girl with a ponytail.

She’s smart, pretty and curious about the world. She’s becoming an adult and she may already be a woman, but she still plays table tennis with childlike enthusiasm. The terror of the future, the shadows of the past, all that real life is just an intuitive feeling.
This may actually be an appropriate beginning for this short introduction to the exhibition of paintings by Katarzyna Karpowicz.
