Religion

illustration of religia poem by Anatol Stern
from
Ziemia na lewo volume,
using a visual fragment of the poem

inkjet print on archival paper, 50 x 70 cm, 2012


An attempt to discuss with a tradition of the Polish 20th century literary avantgarde with using the form of collage. Sokolnicka creates pictures anew from pieces of connotations, literary references and afterimages of a turbulent history of this realm. The 20th century has probably been the most dynamic period of development in this area, where experiment and novelty in the approach to a word has reached its crescendo. Rendition and reconstruction of these changes into a form of a collage pictures cycle is another attempt to read the history of writing. In Sokolnicka’s works a written word and its philosophical and semantic consequences have always played an important role as a cause and etymology to investigate visual culture. Her exhibition in Contemporary Museum Wrocław accompanies the 8th International Short Stories Festival.
