GRUPPA ĆMIELOWSKA vernissage 07/09/2007 19.00 Hours
Title of the exhibition: In Porcelain Store
vernissage 07/09/2007 19.00 Hours
At a vernissage, Letko band will play on stage, and this performance will be complemented with multimedia visualisations.
A film RECORDING OF THE MEMORY – ĆMIELÓW 2005 will be screened as well. It is a mockumentary of a studio performance called Recording of the Memory held in the Ćmielów Porcelain Manufacturing Works in Ćmielów in 2005. The performance was about recording an artist’s current state of mind through an intuitive dance on a band of fictile porcelain mass. The film, together with a porcelain relief, which does not exist any longer (as it was destroyed by a bad witch), but which was recorded, is a part of a Wojciech Stanisław Skowronek diploma cycle. The film was recorded in hall TG1, and the temperature inside it was about 60°C at the time of recording. A porcelain sculpture was later made based on the video recording.
Wojciech Skowronek will stage a performance Mandala during the vernissage. The eponymous mandala will be arranged from porcelain elements – manually impressed handprints.
This is the working name we assumed, as we are stuck together by the place of Ćmielów and porcelain.
We all took advantage of hospitality of The Ćmielów Porcelain Manufacturing Works in Ćmielów and carried out our projects there. Apart from that, we come from different places in Europe (Poland, Slovakia), we studied at different universities of fine arts, although majority of us met at The Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław. Thanks to this exhibition, visitors will take an opportunity to see usable and unique objects made of porcelain.
