Monika Misztal
9th - 28th September

“(…) the appetite is growing, once I open my mouth, I would swallow whole towns, and people, and buildings, and paintings, and breasts, TV sets, motorcycles, stars, odalisques, socks, watches, titles, medals, pears, pills, papers, bananas, masterpieces…”

Kartoteka, Tadeusz Różewicz

The sense of insatiability, which arises from unsatisfied needs, is marked negatively. For Monika Misztal, insatiability is a catalyst for further action, for sucking in the substances needed to get the sense of satiability. The language of artistic expression represents her perception of reality. In her pieces of art, she is greedy and uncompromising. The last cycle by the artist, titled Hunger, reflects her current search for means of expression, unknown possibilities, and artistic insatiability which, with the use of painting methods, she ultimately brings to the point of visual satiety.

Insatiability is a performative project intended to satiate, fill in, the entire space of the building, thus giving it the sense of a new fulfilment.
