We live in an era of diversity and confusion of different species, countries, languages, cultures, genders and of course values. The affinity of art forms such as fine arts, film, music, performance or dance makes it possible to cross borders or to abolish categories - this is lived experience in times of spectacle. The exhibition Wonderful Line. A sentimental Flight bring together manifestations of different artistic positions. However, all participating artists share their reference to conceptual art.
Their work is not limited to one medium as they create hybrid objects or sculptures, paintings, videos and performances simultaneously. However, all of them have an interest in the linear form, which they model with passion and transform with different means of expression. In her works, the line sometimes points to the limits of the real, sometimes connecting distant points, sometimes separating surfaces. Line clusters and line densities are also used to create idiosyncratic visual effects.
In the works shown in the exhibition, the lines can reflect the texture of the surface of bodies - literally - or refer to more ephemeral, abstract forms or phenomena with an uncertain ontological status. Based on Wassily Kandinsky's 1926 book "Point and Line on the Surface", the show confronts the works of visual artists with the unique modern notations of the composer Krzysztof Penderecki, in which enigmatic symbols or feverish zigzag lines appear instead of classical notes. Wonderful Line traces the resonance of musical score forms with the emotional equivalents of colour, sign and gesture in the visual arts, highlighting the unruly glow and inner vibrations of certain works.
