GIRL ON CANVAS
For everyone in Berlin, the book store buch|bund is featuring an artist talk with Pola Dwurnik on:
“Painting is not dead. It is the viewers who are lifeless or stunned. Though not all and that is precisely what this book is about. It is about how a girl, painted on a canvas, can communicate with us.”
“Girl on Canvas / Dziewczyna na płótnie” presents a collection of texts by various authors (Maria Poprzęcka, Maria Anna Potocka, Olga Tokarczuk, and others) who were asked to give feedback to Dwurnik’s works. The artist will talk about the relation between pictures and words with Konstanty F. Szydłowski, one of the contributors to the book.

GIRL ON CANVAS is an artbook project by Pola Dwurnik about painting and its reception. It will show a new life of Dwurnik’s paintings, one completely uncontrolled by the artist life born in minds and hearts of over 30 various personalities, who wrote texts for the publication. The book will be both openly personal and bravely intimate. Subversive, rascally and girlish. A subtle riot.
Among the authors are: Prof Maria Poprzęcka, art historian, Emilie Buri, art historian and linguist, Piotr (Peter) Lachmann, poet, essayist and theatre director, Olga Tokarczuk, writer, Michał Kozłowski, philosopher and academic lecturer, Andreas Blättler, art historian working in Schaulager in Basel, Konstanty F. Szydłowski, philosopher, Romanist and art historian, Oskar Zięta, designer, creator of FiDU technology, Krzysztof Visconti, Berlin journalist and filmmaker, Maria Anna Potocka, director of MOCAK Museum of Modern Art in Kraków and many more.
Concept and graphic design of the book: Dagny & Daniel Szwed (moonmadness.eu)
The book will be distributed in Europe by MOTTO.
