Zachęta – National Gallery of Art
entry included in the ticket price, first come, first served basis

Consultations conducted in English

Using the ( absent) works of the exhibition : “A Better You” in conjunction with some pieces from the permanent collection of the museum as an interpretive system, JL offers personal consultations to people dedicatied to discussing a problem.

What is the resonance of an exhibition? The gathering of works together for an exhibition or a permanent collection brings them into relation to each other creating a dynamic code system that can be performed/ read. When we go see work in a museum or gallery what are we hoping to receive? What do we give the works by visiting them? By using the art works present in the museum as a performative divining system we can imagine that these works concern you directly and are dying to speak with you to you.

Organized with the financial support from the City of Warsaw:
