Hasior Reincarnations – an exhibition shown in Zakopane in 2012.
The exhibition was inspired by the life and work of Władysław Hasior, a legendary Polish artist, strongly related to the Podhale region. His works, although not much understood, beacme cult pieces in the sixties and seventies. Today is clear that his original, outstanding attitude and art philosophy were outrunning its times and anticipating new trends.
Does performace need craftsmanship? Can video instalation relate to folk motives? Do surrealism and everyday objects blend together?
Przemyslaw Wanczyk showed THe HOST. The work consisted of 5 pieces of silver sterling host, each of them pointing to one of the modern “religions”. This work relates to one of the most important themes of Hasior works – Religion, belief, prayer, freedom, guilt and pain. What is the role of religion today? What are the new religions of the modern world?
The poster of the exhibition was designed by Przemyslaw Wanczyk.
