From the mass of thickly laid off paint, there emerge words taken out of context and deliberately crooked. The clash between the background and the semantic content enhances the impact. The choice of words has been thought of carefully. They are all related to current ideological and patriotic discussions. Gender play is an additional device to manipulate meanings. The same adjective has different connotations depending on whether it is feminine or masculine.
Jadwiga Sawicka (b. 1960)
Painting, object, photography, textual installation. Her works are defined by the term ”written painting.” Individual items of clothing appear in the paintings, frequently accompanied by sentences out of context – popular phrases or newspaper headlines. She also creates works whose main ingredients are texts saturated with tension. Beneath the highlighted verbal communique, each member of the audience may ”add” his or her own story. Despite the common starting point, however, each of the stories has its own identity.
