Radek Szlaga
The Heart
Gallery Laure Roynette
16.04.2015 – 23.05.2015

 

Sandra Mulliez and Laure Roynette Gallery invite Radek Szlaga and present his soloshow, “The Heart”. Radek Szlaga is a teller of the stories of the post generation. Modernism, rock, structuralism, colonialism — everything that could fall, fell, and passed not withoutconsequences. The artist became a witness of irrevocable changes and an author of the tales of a new generation that emerged on the ruins of old separations and identities. Divided between an anthropological need for mythical and founding narrations and the disruptive forces of contemporary visuality, Szlaga developed a hyper-textual language that continues to intrigue and question the relationship between the traditional medium of painting and the more recent possibilities of a digitally and technologically wide-world. On the one hand, his painting practice is embedded in the contemporary networks of the distribution of the visible; on the other, it pursues a controversial politics of apportionment of its own. Szlaga establishes what could be called a planned economy of the redistribution of the over-visible and the under-visible.
