EWA KURYLUK  |  I, White Kangaroo

Collateral Event of the 59th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia
23rd April – 27th November 2022
Palazzo Querini | Calle Lunga S. Barnaba | Dorsoduro 2691 | Venezia


Organized by: Starak Family Foundation | Warsaw | Poland
Curator: Ania Muszyńska


Ewa Kuryluk had the ambition to find her own style, and she succeeded working with fabric in the late 1970s. A versatile and interdisciplinary artist whose work can universally intrigue and impress, Ewa Kuryluk is the leading representative of Polish hyperrealist painting and a pioneer of site-specific installations. She is an award-winning writer and poet, as well as a well-known art historian. In her art, she refers to the ancient idea of “outlining the shadow”. In her art history she complements her own artistic intuitions with the studies of the „vera icon, the true image”. She is the author of Veronica & Her Cloth: History, Symbolism and Structure of a „True Image” (1991), an extensive scholarly study of this topic in the East and West.


Ewa Kuryluk’s Collateral Event at the Biennale Arte 2022 is a meeting with a humanist and intellectual, with the author of post-modern fiction and of scholarly essays. Her novels tell us also something about her roles as daughter, sister and lover, and we see her life’s reflections in the ephemeral cotton and silk installations providing us with personal narratives and moving in the air.


Ewa Kuryluk (b. 1946) is one of the most important Polish artists, known worldwide having had 50 solo shows and over 60 group shows in Europe, USA, South America, Canada and Japan. Pioneer of ephemeral textile installation and air art, painter, photographer, art historian, novelist and poet. Her work can be found in public & private collections in Europe & the USA, and be seen in the National Museums in Warsaw, Cracow, Poznan, Wroclaw and the Muzeum Sztuki in Łódz.
