BARTOSZ ZASKÓRSKI. THE STORY OF A PIPE AND OTHER LOVE STORIES

  • okres trwania: 16th of April – 11th of June 2016
  • kurator: curator: Stanisław Ruksza
  • dodatkowe: opening: 16th of April (Saturday) 2016, 7 pm

The story of a pipe is an audio drama devoted to a young artist compelled by a heartbreak to take up Conceptual art. He concentrates on the question of pipes, and thus paves the way for a tragedy.

A female voice is emitted from a speaker hidden inside a pipe – an object styled to resemble a Minimalist sculpture, which the protagonist of the drama might build.

The work forms part of the cycle Love Stories, pursued in 2014 and 2015, which comprises objects, audio dramas, and video films. Love Stories is a project in which laughter, death, spoken stories, sounds, art, plaster, wood and pipes become intertwined in a loving embrace and thus form a hermetic and incomprehensible statement. In reality, this statement serves to sabotage the status quo of the contemporary art gallery.
