Bank Pekao PROJECT ROOM Witold Modrzejewski, "Father's Dream" from CSW TV.
Witold Modrzejewski’s implementation is a reconstruction of personal utopia, dreams of a perfect home, located somewhere on the top of a hill, surrounded by woods, near water, away from other human settlements. The artist’s father was creating this vision for eight years, looking for the ideal place to erect his abode. Nothing, however, ever met his expectations; there was always something wrong. Eventually, his son offered to help him in visualizing the dream. The result of one year’s worth of cooperation is a series of layouts and images of the perfect place, at least in theory, for a person from the metropolis to reside in, who has had enough of living in an urban beehive. Apart from the visualization of the land and the house, situations arose that constituted a reason for meetings and conversations between father and son.
Personal and oneiric, but at the same time, paradoxically, a very universal project of Modrzejewski’s, which is a story about searching for the impossible, about the formation of dreams that don’t stand a chance. It is also a peculiar history of human aspirations and desires, whose life is bound to a big city, but constantly wants to run away from it.
Witold Modrzejewski (born in 1990) is a graphic arts student at the University of Arts in Poznań, he also studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice. His work involves several media, his interests include painting, installation, photography, and graphics. He lives in Poznań and Katowice.
Bank Pekao PROJECT ROOM:
Pekao Bank PROJECT ROOM brings the possibility of the presentation to the public the newest and the most interesting individual art projects and creates a platform for discussion about contemporary art to which we would like to invite artists, curators, students and other art lovers. The Centre for Contemporary Art at Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw (CCA) and Poland's Pekao Bank have come together to launch a new project aimed at supporting and promoting young artists. For the next two years starting 23 April the CCA hosts a new show ever two weeks featuring up-and-coming Polish and international artists. The presentation of striking works by this young creative generation in the PROJECT ROOM has been made possible by the financial support of Pekao Bank. Pekao Bank's PROJECT ROOM aims to forge a platform for a discussion on contemporary art, inviting artists, curators, students and art enthusiasts to join in. Entry is free for all exhibitions and events within the Pekao Bank PROJECT ROOM framework. At the end of this year a special commission will select the most interesting projects of 2012, which will then be purchased by Pekao Bank and donated to the CCA's permanent collection.
