Highlander Clasp Exhibition

Post by on 16 May 2016

Higlander Clasp Exhibition in WW Gallery (2013), curated by Przemyslaw Wanczyk. The exhibition was included in The International Festival of Mountain Folklore in Zakopane.

The clasp is one of the most important symbols of the highlander tradition. A strongly personal item, embelleshed with age-old intricate symbols, an adornment with ability to empower and safeguard wearers, is treated as a talisman, almost a magic object. Even nowadays the highlander clasp worn at the center of the chest transmits to the owner the force of the symbols and the power of precious metals. This ancient and universal dimension of jewellery addresses our essential vulnerability and attempts to overcome fear and uncertainty through wearable ornament. Jewellery in this context becomes a necessity, not an accessory.

ONE TREE

This project depicts two parallel processes that are connected with destruction and decay, and, at the same time, lead to new creations. The photographs that document the natural processes occurring in the forest, the domain that remains beyond human interference, have been set together with the intentional processing of wood by designers. In both cases, this transformation has its specific complexity and worth.

Curator: Jarosław Hulbój, Partner of the project: Tatra National Park
Artists: Wzorowo, Przemyslaw Wanczyk, Beton / Marta Rowińska, Lech Rowiński, Maciej Gąsienica-Giewont, Kompott / Maja Ganszyniec, Krystian Kowalski, Jarosław Hulbój, Jadwiga Majerczak-Żmidzińska, Gabriela Kowalska, Jerzy Sarkowicz, Tomasz Opania, Piotr Stolarski, Paweł Jasiewicz, Marek Majerczak

Opening of WW Gallery in Krupówki St. Zakopane in 2013.

Przemyslaw Wanczyk created WW Gallery for sharing his passion and his approach to art, space and beauty. The place was meant to be a pause from the tedious mass production, aimed to make people stop and think about  the approach to shopping. Apart from unique jewellery, the Gallery offered one-of-a-kind objects created by talented artists, craftsmen and designers who are characterised by their love of beauty, their artistic honesty, their attention to detail and their use of high quality materials and aesthetics. The Gallery was showing from 2012 to 2015.
