Edward Krasiński: Les mises en scène
VIENNA  •  Generali Foundation  •  Ongoing

A major retrospective devoted to Edward Krasinski (1925 - 2004), an important protagonist of the Polish neo-avant-garde from the 1960s and 1970s.

Dark rooms with sculptures, enhanced by lighting effects; labyrinthine architectures and pedestals on which performative objects are arranged; the artist as actor who stages himself and his works in front of the camera, also thematizing his own creations.

This exhibition focuses on Edward Krasinskiís unique exhibition designs, grandiose settings for his works for which he transformed the respective spaces into completely new spatial situations.

The retrospective also features the first-ever comprehensive display of the (self-) representations that Krasinski created, often in collaboration with the photographer Eustachy Kossakowski.
