Artist & Curator Talk

Paulina Olowska in conversation with Clément Dirié, Natalia Sielewicz and Elisabeth Lebovici - Destroyed Woman: Curated by Clément Dirié

Paulina Olowska, Clément Dirié, Natalia Sielewicz, curator at the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw where she recently organized the show Paint, Also Known as Blood: Women, Affect, and Desire in Contemporary Painting, and French critic and cultural writer Elisabeth Lebovici will propose a polyphonic interpretation of the exhibition stemming from their own experiences and research.

The exhibition constitutes the latest chapter in the artist’s continuous and fertile research into image-making, exploring the ways in which she interprets painting as a vehicle for her idiosyncratic visions and as a facilitator for the exchange of feelings and sensations with the viewer.

Spanning the gallery’s three floors, 'Destroyed Woman' puts forward a visual and emotional landscape through which to contemplate the self and the other, provoking our consideration of themes such as womanhood, ageing, the power of tradition and the spectator’s gaze.
