Szymon Kula (PL)
The first resident artist of this year is young painter from Poland.
Szymon Kula’s artistic practice explores the potential of painting and focuses on iconographic peripheries. Investigating memories deeply rooted in a private experience he appropriates alternative histories and identities into his personal mythology. Usually working in series and multiples he challenges the orthodox strategies of display presenting canvases alongside object, sound, video or performance. Constructing narratives that often correspond to the site specific environment Kula emphasises the tension between the illusionism and the actual physicality of the artwork.
