16.55 (5' M) - Mirek Antoniewicz
(instalação / installation)
17.00 / 17.15 - My space 15 minutes of Fame (5' D - 17.20)
The year is 1959. The Market Square in Wroclaw.
A boy feeding pigeons.
Overwhelming dullness: grey paving,
grey pigeons, people in the street.
A moment captured. The boy from the photo
is present in all the paintings.
Treated like this, he ceases to exist as a
pseudo self-portrait of the artist.
Information loses its meaning.
The boy becomes a symbol.
The child figure is a point of reference,
a record of past experiences,
individual desires and expectations,
an evocation of choices and limitations
bringing back memories.
