Ewelina Skowronska Exhibition: 逸文 itsubun − Fragments of Beauty

Art

Ewelina Skowronska’s exhibition 逸文  itsubun – Fragments of Beauty is the first solo exhibition by the Polish visual artist at Spiral. The show will present her ceramic pieces as well as new prints of the series, if not, winter, she has developed at Art Village Shirakino  residency in Nagasaki, Japan. This body of work is inspired by fragments of poems by an Ancient Greece poetess, Sappho, who has been the subject of her interest, in developing aspects related to sexuality, desire, body, experience and identity.

The works of Ewelina Skowronska encompass in their essence that all women, regardless of skin color, body shape or cultural background, are equally strong and beautiful. At the core of this series is the female figure that she draws in a bold composition with gentle colors. By exploring the body in its physicality and sensuality, she obtains figures always fragmented, and on the edge of the figurative and abstract.

The poetess Sappho of the island of Lesbos was living around 600 B.C. Ewelina Skowronska views her works as “lyrics depicting feminine beauty, desire and rejecting the world of masculine warfare.” Most of Sappho’s work, which survived time, remains in fragmentary form and it is these fragments that the artists has interpreted as fragments within our Self and gave a shape to, in her works.

This exhibition is proposed onsite and on Spiral website, to connect you with the experience of art, from anywhere.
