“REEL STATIC. LOOKING INTO FAMILY FRAMES”

12 December (Tuesday), 6 pm

Trauma and Revival Imagining Future Pasts / Handling History
3rd edition of film screenings
Curators: Katarzyna Bojarska (in collaboration with Iwona Kurz)
Location: Bunkier Sztuki Gallery of Contemporary Art
Pl. Szczepański 3a
Conversation: Gabriela Sułkowska

Not only is the past a foreign country where things are being done differently – to paraphrase L.P. Hartley – the same can be said about one’s family history, where feeling at home does not necessarily equal knowing it well and in detail. The artist pursues a multi-media reconstruction of the war history of the members of her family. She is trying to interpret and respond to private and public archives which store fragments of troubled pasts, which she then re-orders as a building material for mnemonic practices, recollections and reconstructions. Harasymowicz will present her multi-stage project and talk about various aspects of her inquiry with Gabriela Sułkowska.
