Copenhagen-based artists Bloom and Wróblewski on exhibit in Warsaw
On November 6th Warsaw will see artists Doris Bloom and Grzegorz Wróblewski presenting some of their works at the exhibition ‘Wróblewski / Bloom’ at the Warsaw Literary Museum.
Among the exhibited works is their renowned collaboration-piece, ‘New Colony’, which consistis of tableaus and video-installations that was first created in Copenhagen between 2005 and 2006, and has been shown at the prestigious Den Frie Udstilling in Copenhagen. The work is based on Wróblewski’s novel by the same name, released in 2003, and the tableaus has by some been linked to the cave paintings at Lascaux or been interpreted as a ‘psycho-calligraphic mapping’.
Doris Bloom is one of the most remarkable Danish visual artists of her generation. She was born and raised in South Africa and educated at Johannesburg College of Art. Bloom immigrated to Denmark in 1976 and continued her studies at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Her culturally mixed background is clearly reflected in her works and offers a unique mix of African and European heritage, often with a personal touch or even participation. Bloom’s work covers painting, graphic art, photography, video art and performance.
Grzegorz Wróblewski was born in Gdańsk in Poland and grew up in Warsaw. In 1985 he immigrated to Denmark and has since then been living in Copenhagen. Wróblewski is a multi-artist and could be called an author and a poet as well as a painter and a musician. He has released a rich array of literary works – novels, dramas and poems – as well as exhibited paintings, art installations and performances, and collaborated and performed with musicians. He has been awarded with several prestigious prizes, both in Poland and in Denmark, and his literary works has been translated into several languages, ranging from Russian and Vietnamese to Spanish and Hungarian.
The ‘Wróblewski / Bloom’-exhibition will run from November 6th until December 31st, 2019. It will be the first presentation of Doris Bloom’s work for a Polish audience.
