ILLEGIBILITY. PALIMPSESTS

AN EXHIBITION

17 December 2016 – 30 March 2017
opening: Friday, 16 December 2016, 6 PM

The Pan Tadeusz Museum
Rynek 6, Wrocław                                                                                                                                      












The phenomenon of illegibility and the accumulation of layers of script is the subject of the new temporary exhibition at the Pan Tadeusz Museum. The exhibition includes works e.g. by Andrzej Bednarczyk, Irma Blank, Zbigniew Libera and Andrzej Szewczyk.

Most of us have experienced writing down a note which is later illegible, even to ourselves; it has occurred to almost everyone that we failed to decipher someone else's scribbling, or have come across a system of signs that we couldn't understand. How do we feel then: irritated, helpless, powerless? Or perhaps, in those conditions, when the desire for meaning evades us so blatantly, do we discover perception of different kind, where the script becomes a material phenomenon in itself, a fascinating ornament, a code without information? We see scripts which are visible, but not legible.

The notion of a palimpsest appears to be closely related to illegibility. This term describes a manuscript written on previously used material. A palimpsest involves layers of overwritten script, in which the old layers eventually begin to reappear from below the new, making the writing less legible, if at all.

I would certainly describe the exhibition at the Pan Tadeusz Museum in Wrocław as a palimpsest in itself, because it was developed on the basis of the first “layer”, namely the exhibition “Illegibility. The Contexts of Script”, which took place at the Art Stations Foundation by Grażyna Kulczyk in Poznań (February – May 2016). Yet the nature of a palimpsest involves a continuous process, hence the exhibition in Wrocław carries a different title and includes an expanded set of works.

The works collected at the “Illegibility – Palimpsests” exhibition are located not only in the temporary exhibition space, but also seamlessly infiltrate the rooms of the permanent exhibition at the Pan Tadeusz Museum.

The opening of the exhibition, on Friday 16 December at 6 PM, includes a performance by Ewa Partum from her “Active Poetry” series (free entry).

Un Coup de Dés Jamais N'Abolira Le Hasard - Pilot Gallery

30 SEPTEMBER - 5 NOVEMBER
Artists: Özgür Demirci, Elmas Deniz, Didem Erk, Lee Garcia, Leyla, Hacer Kıroğlu, Alican Leblebici, Ali Miharbi, Ceylan Öztürk, İrem Tok, Şener Özmen, Seda Yıldız
Pilot launches the new art season with a group exhibition entitled Un Coup de Dés Jamais N'Abolira Le Hasard, which runs between 30 September and 5 November. Featuring works by 12 artists, the exhibition is an attempt to explore new possibilities as well as the complexity inherent in the evolving relationship between art and language. The works on view challenge the idea of a language, full of rules and restrictions, which compels immediate readings; instead, they embrace pliable and even subjective versions.
Many works in the exhibition use a range of strategies to free the written word from the conventional surfaces and functions it has been associated with, and to divorce language from a linear narrative. Other artists concentrate on the material qualities of language by displaying text, words and books as objects.
The exhibition borrowed its title from the 1897 poem by French poet Stephan Mallarmé. Un Coup de Dés was printed 16 years after the author’s death, following his meticulous instructions. Spread over 11 open-face pages, the poem that flows along irregular lines amidst blank spaces inspired artist Marcel Broodthaers, over half a century later, for his namesake artist’s book.

VIDEOS ON STAGE

Ruins and Wounds

curated by Basak Senova


“He loved the extensive vaults where you could hear the night birds and the sea breeze; he loved the craggy ruins bound together by ivy, those dark halls, and any appearance of death and destruction. Having fallen so far from so high a position, he loved anything that had also fallen from a great height”
― Gustave Flaubert

 The Videos on Stage traces secret road maps of personal histories, stories, memories and dreams about wounds and ruins. Some wounds heal, leaving nothing behind, but a scar and some wounds stay with a pain that lingers. While indicating the infinity and cruelty of time, ruins also stabilize the sense of ephemerality. The correlation between wounds and ruins could branch out into multiple narratives, perspectives, entities, and realities that exist and possessed at the same moment.
 “Ruins and Wounds” selection consists of three chapters that gather works according to their thematic and form-based links to each other. Each work invites the viewer to enter the maze of temporalities, while witnessing and grasping the wounds. In the mean time, the uncertainty of spatial, territorial and mental temporalities adds another dimension to the act of watching. Recalling and experiencing a wound is then, disguised with the act of watching.

SAHNEDEKİ VİDEOLAR

Harabeler ve Yaralar

Küratör: Başak Şenova

 “Gece kuşlarını ve denizden gelen esintinin duyulduğu geniş mahzenleri seviyordu; sarmaşıkların birlikte tuttuğu dik harabeleri, o karanlık holleri, ölüm ve yok etmeyi gösteren her yeri seviyordu. O kadar yüksek bir yerden düşmüştü ki, kendisi gibi yükseklerden düşmüş olan her şeyi seviyordu.”
― Gustave Flaubert

 Sahnedeki Videolar, Seçki harabeler ve yaralar üzerine kişisel hikayelerin, anıların ve hayallerin saklı yol haritalarının izini sürüyor. Bazı yaralar iz bırakmakdan iyileşir. Bazıları ise acılarıyla birlikte olduğu gibi kalır. Harabeler zamanın sonsuzluğu ile acımasızlığına işaret ederken, geçicilik hissini sabitleştirir. Harabeler ile yaralar arasındaki ilişki, aynı anda var olarak, içkinleştirilebilecek birçok farklı anlatımı, bakış açısını ve gerçeklikleri ayrıştırıp, açımlayabilir.

"Harabeler ve Yaralar" tematik ve biçimsel bağlantılar üzerinden üç bölüme ayrılıyor. Her iş izleyiciyi bir taraftan yaralara şahit olup, bir taraftan da onları kavrarken, zamansallıkların labirentine girmeye davet ediyor. Aynı zamanda da mekansal, alansal ve zihinsel zamanların belirsizliği, izleme tecrübesine farklı bir boyut katıyor. Böylece, yarayı hatırlama ve deneyimleme de izleme eyleminin ardında gizleniyor.
