Krzysztof Kokoryn: Interviews
The tango as an excuse (I Met a Friend)
The tango is a story that happens between two people, for a few minutes on the dance floor, and that may continue elsewhere. I’m no expert on the history of the tango and it was never my intention to paint that history. To me tango is about emotions. Either you feel them, carry them inside you, or you don’t.
Picturing the joyous moments
In the beginning, there’s always a flask.
I obviously have to drink it up first. But don’t you think I would paint every single bottle I’ve emptied.
I have a deep respect for gravity
Generally, I don’t become attached to things, not even to my paintings. Maybe it’s because I’m a nomad like my Tartar ancestors.
