Valentine’s Day is approaching – the celebration of love. Not all lovers, however, feel joy and butterflies in their stomachs. Love is also disappointment, abandonment, separation, loneliness. The latest series of works by Pola Dwurnik entitled “Unhappy Ending” consists of drawings, gouaches and lithographs telling about the end of love, the pain of separation, despair and longing. They were inspired by Ania Malinowska’s poems on the same subject, written in the last few years. Both artists analyse the morphology of the broken heart and the accompanying frustration, tenderly and even with a bit of humour. They avoid pathos and the heavy drama of the genre. The poems and drawings make up a beautiful, poetic artbook “Unhappy Ending. Poems for the Broken/Hearted”, which is about to hit the stands.
On the first day of the exhibition, on Saturday 13 February, we invite you to a meeting with the authors of the book.
