The Sun Extinguished

Wozownia Art Gallery, Torun, 01.04–03.05.2016

Michal Smandek’s exhibition opens a series of presentations touching issues related to the travels of contemporary artists and the use of events and objects encountered on the way as a matter of their creative activities. The exhibition includes, among others, works from the series The Prognostic made during a trip to the Italian volcanoes. The project relates to the impact of the forces of nature to human activity, and vice versa ­ human interference in nature. In The Prognostic the artist anticipates disaster as a spectacular phenomenon, to which the man, despite the support of technology, remains powerless.
