I am taking part in a group exhibition entitled Other Tales ("Inne Bajki"). The exhibition lasts from 8
January to 30 March 2009 at the Wyspiański Pavilion 2000 (Plac Wszystkich Świętych 2). The curators of the exhibition are Małgorzata Mleczko and Patrycja Musiał. It is organised by the No Local Foundation, the City of Krakow and the Krakow Festival Office.
"We would like to tell you about contemporary fairy-tales. Why? We formed this idea when we observed the growing infantilization of culture and the increased interest in fairy-tales and childhood both in the realm of so called ‘high’ and ‘low’ culture in the last two decades. This subject matter is popular in advertising, film, literature, and the media. This fascination with fairy-tales and childhood is also present in visual arts." (an excerpt from the curators' text by Małgorzata Mleczko and Patrycja Musiał)
