Piesliak: Giving the emotions back to the world
The Polish Art Gallery held the opening ceremony of the Rafał Piesliak’s exhibition named “Człowiek z cienia” (Man from shadows), Rafał Piesliak is a young sculptor, conceptualist from the Vilnius region. “Człowiek z cienia” exhibits drawings that are part of Rafal’s creations, and a few completely new works of art.
Installations are my passion. I like working with space, to alter, and to shape it. Drawing, however, is one of the elements that I use to create an installation. Drawing in my work has never been separated and has always been an inherent part of the installations. I do not draw on the paper, in most cases I do it directly on the walls, or the other surface. This time, at Magdalena Mieczkowska’s prompting I exhibited my drawings as independent part of my artistic work.”- said Rafał Piesliak for PL DELFI.
“I really like graphic, the so called black and white art, and after seeing a few drawings by Rafal, I decided to convince him to organize the exhibition, to try out something new, something different from sculpture and installations”- Magdalena Mieczkowska-curator of the exhibition, reported for PL DELFI
The pictures depict internal emotions of men.
“Each man absorbs plenty of information and emotions from the world. I decided to give some of the emotions back to the people. All of my installations refer to humans, and to their emotions. There’s always an element of human being, and on the very drawings, the internal emotions of men are depicted.” – explained Piesliak.
There’s also a part of a light installation of the young artist, available at the exhibition.
The exhibition lasts until 28 January.
