Flowers, object, installation, 2005

Curator: Maria Ana Potocka
Bunkier Sztuki, Cracow, Poland

In Flowers a symbolic complication has an even greater ability to inspire a creation of plots. The pictures which are given to us, are a quiet, lifeless evidence of a secret incident. The configuration of the dress, the beauty of the composition push our perception into an esthetic satisfaction. But this pleasure doesn't last too long. Quickly anxiety comes. A "thrown away" dress always means something dramatic. We are not able to exist without dress, we cannot be nude, our skin is not ready "to touch reality". Behind a discarded dress there has to be a difficult decision, probably a decision taken under pressure. But why do Małgorzata's Flowers have such a great construction? They look like something which was dropped simply. But... beauty cannot come from such natural action. Maybe this is an intentional, perfect composition, which plays the role of a tender goodbye?
