Collection - Basia Gryka's Lesson
December 5 - December 24, 2021

Please feel invited to my world through the SOON_ project. I have prepared a class on the artistic works from the Collection. With a childlike gesture, I have transferred selected paintings to kites. Each of the quoted artists has been given a tie: a colourful attribute, which can function as a skipping rope, a cord, or a clothesline during a game or play. 


The artists represent the generations of my grandmother and my mother. 


I wondered whether I, as a young female artist, would be able to skip the gender gap, just like when skipping rope. 


While using the convention of the first classes and gestures noticed in children, I treat work as a play:
a way to begin a discussion, opening to changes.
