Conspirators of the imagination

Conspirators of the imagination

Selena Kimball, Andrzej Klimowski, Mieczysław Wasilewski
The exhibition will present illustrations for four books by Agnieszka Taborska, writer and expert in surrealism: Selena Kimball’s collages for Senny żywot Leonory de la Cruz (The Dreamy Life of Leonora de la Cruz) and Nieokończone życie Phoebe Hicks (The Unfinished Life of Phoebe Hicks; coming out at the time of the Conrad Festival); Mieczysław Wasilewski's drawings for Wieloryb, czyli przypadek obiektywny (The Whale, or: Objective Coincidence), and Andrzej Klimowski's linocuts for Nie tak jak w raju (Not Like in Paradise).
These artists are well-known creators and professors at important universities and schools in Poland, England, and the United States. Although they work using different media, they have a lot in common: oneiric imagination, the love of black and white, and drawing inspiration from literature. Illustrations for Agnieszka Taborska’s books were created in cooperation with the author.
The exhibition will also present a short animated film by Marcin Giżycki and Josh Backer, produced on the basis of Selena Kimball's collages for The Dreamy Life of Leonora de la Cruz.
