Cezary Bodzianowski - this Place is Called the Hole
A theatre without posters. One-man show. It treats city as a giant set where the audience is not a recipient but an element of the show. The works of Cezary Bodzianowski are an original artistic creation consistently practised for years. This is the first so extensive a catalogue to illustrate it.
The publication is an album of photographic documentation of ephemeral „events” gently distrupting the course of everyday life. The catalogue is supplemented by a theoretical part. It includes a text by Catherine Wood who analyses the way Bodzianowski transforms prosaic situations into „unreal” moments. Jarosław Suchan sees in Bodzianowski's works the continuation of avant-garde thought whose artistic prority was participation in creating reality instead of creating a painting. Susanne Titz describes the influence of the many years spent in Antwerp and encounters with the art of Magritte, Broodthaers, the Surrealists and Conceptual artists had on Bodzianowski's art.
