Exhibition in Wozownia Gallery in Toruń.
Magda Węgrzyn / Blue Mountains Rediscovered
opening of the exhibition: 16.09 (Friday), 6 p.m. / admission free
The exhibition by Magdalena Wegrzyn is composed of materials from her residential stay in Australia. She reached into the history of this continent associated with the colonization of lands inhabited by Aborigines. The exhibition’s title refers to the title of the book by Chris Cunningham’s “Blue Mountains Rediscovered: Beyond the Myths of Early Australian Exploration”. This book has become for the artist, among others, the source of quotes to work “Lottery”, which focuses on the theme of crossing the Blue Mountains by the three explorers: Blaxland, Wentworth and Lawson in 1813. The artist compiled in her work various texts about the event – depending on the perspective of their authors. The exhibition consists of videos, animation and objects connected with the stay of the artist in Australia and her exploration of its history and geography.
