Share This Article
April 7 – June 26, 2022
Curator: Patrycja Sap. The title of this year’s Drawing Triennial competition was chosen for its relevance as well as its capacity and multifaceted nature. It gives the participating artists the opportunity to explore various contexts and meanings, references to ancient and recent history, pandemic reality, new and old orders, culture, pop culture, religion, politics, and to take up personal issues. Among the works presented at the Wrocław Contemporary Museum, which are extremely varied not only in terms of the way of thinking about the medium, but above all on the level of meaning, three main issues stand out. These are: the past, the present and the future, which in this case are a kind of vectors without a clear direction and course, along which, in a non-linear way, the artists move.

Exhibition by Monika Drożyńska, laureate of the Wrocław Drawing Triennial 2019. This is an exhibition about welcoming visitors and the fear of visitors. An exhibition about gold and rotten teeth, bowel movements, German washing powder, sweat and Ponglish.
Monika Drożyńska’s embroideries are a record of the causes and effects of migration, emigration, one-way travel, and the role language plays in this story. In a nutshell—why we keep rushing somewhere and what comes out of it.
Location: Wroclaw Contemporary Museum, Wrocław, pl. Strzegomski 2a.
Curator: Honza Zamojski.
The concept of the exhibition WORLD(S) is closely related to the architecture of BWA Wrocław Główny gallery and its two wings of exhibition spaces. One part is occupied by the light world and the other by the dark world. These are not oppositions. Lightness and darkness of the rooms do not symbolize anything. Nor do they set themselves at opposite poles of discussion. The two worlds are different, but with similar parameters and composed according to similar principles. In each wing of the gallery, the same artists will present works at identical points in the space of each room.
The differences and similarities between the worlds can only be seen through small shifts in meaning and contrasts. Sometimes these contrasts result from the subject matter of the works, other times from their form. Some works play with the illusion of mirror reflection, some with the concepts of negative and positive. Thus, in the exhibition, drawing is present in every form, often positioning itself as a point of contact in communication between different and parallel worlds. Detached from the burden of formal solutions, it becomes words, emotions and emancipation.
