The “museum” in quotation marks is […] an individual response to the phenomenon of the gathering of collections, of the creating of new places of acquisitions, of museums, of the employing of curators, of the manipulating of the machinery of the market with the aim of crating collections, and also with the field of the presenting of collections, of the publishing of papers”, Marek Sobczyk wrote in 2006 in the folder accompanying the exhibition which took place in Zachęta’s Mały Salon in 2006.
At the exhibition in Zachęta, he investigates amongst others critical art (Kowalski, Kozyra and Żmijewski), and the work of Uklański, but also that of Polke, Richter and Duchamp. By taking these (and other) names in quotation marks, the public receives not only their art, but also an image of it, through the analysis of artistic styles by Marek Sobczyk. In this edition, the “museum” in quotation marks will also feature installations, sculptures and objects as developed by Sobczyk to accompany paintings by Marek Sobczyk – one of the most interesting contemporary painters with an unwavering place in the canon of Polish art.
