We'll kiss each other's lips

I do prefer to use photos. And we are all surrounded by them, aren’t we? These days people never stop taking photos with their mobile phones. That’s our world and this world inspires me.

We'll kiss each other's lips

The exhibition of paintings by Katarzyna Swinarska entitled “Pocałujmy się w usta” ('We'll kiss each other's lips')

The exhibition of paintings by Katarzyna Swinarska entitled “Pocałujmy się w usta” ('We'll kiss each other's lips') touches upon the issues of street sensitivity and romanticism: film characters, people from billboards and graffiti on flaky walls – is this not what shapes our dreams and desires?. The title of the exhibition comes from the poem by Halina Poświatowka 'Eternal FInale'.

ETERNAL FINALE

I’ve been promising paradise
but it’s not the truth
for I’ll lead you into hell
into redness – into pain

we won’t stroll through blissful gardens
nor peek through cracks
to watch peonies and hyacinths blossom –
what we’ll do is lie on the ground
by the gates of the devil’s palace

like angels we’ll flutter
our wings of darkened syllables
and sing a song
of simple human love

in the glimmer of light
seeping in from there
we’ll kiss each other’s lips
whisper goodnight
fall asleep

in the morning – a guard will chase us
from a battered park bench
and with a horrid laugh
point – at an apple core
by the roots of the tree
