Szymborska’s Drawer: Wisława Szymborska
KRAKOW • National Museum, Kraków • 1 February - 31 December 2014
|The exhibition is a kind of stage set, a three-dimensional collage, in which the poet's belongings are juxtaposed with quotations from Nobel Prize winner Wisława Szymborska's works and photographs of people, places and things, leading the viewer into her private world of poetic imagination and intellectual inspiration.
An interesting object in the ‘drawer’ is a chest designed by the Nobel Prize winner, in which she kept photographs and other things. How important her furniture was for her is testified by the poem ‘Possibilities’ in which poet confesses ‘I prefer desk drawers’ – hence the title of the exhibition. In this exhibition, the chest is hidden behind the door, and can be seen only through a peephole.
The show marks the first anniversary of the death of the poet.
