“I don’t search, I find”


“There is no new art. There are new artists. The new artist must be completely faithful to him or herself, must be a creator, must be capable of building his or her own foundations directly and alone, without depending on the past or tradition… the formula is his or her antithisis”

Egon Schiele

“Without art life would be a mistake”
Friederich Nietzsche

“I close my eyes in order to see”

Paul Gauguin

“The work of the artist is always to deepen the mystery”

Francis Bacon

Program of activities in Katowice

Venue: Katowice City of Gardens – Institution of Culture

15:00 - 18.00 (Central Zone) – meetings with representatives of the world of art, as part of the project ”kulTUralnie”, originated and coordinated by students of the Katowice higher secondary school Liceum A. Mickiewicza z Katowic – conversations, presentations and lectures.

18:00 -20.00 (Engram Gallery) – opening of the exhibition of graphic works by Marcin Hajewski ”Myśl niezapowiedziana (”Unexpected Thought)” and meeting with the artist.

„Myśl niezapowiedziana” is a series of over a dozen graphics in which the artist undertakes to record the phenomenon of the memory construct. The realm of thoughts – those present and repressed ones, temporarily postponed and persistently recurring ones, filling each free space of here and now. Their presence is an unnecessary choice. It is a physical matter, frequently uncontrolled, not fully formative for the creative process, but causing its positive drive and physical distortion. It is a record in which the artist used the techniques of offset printing and algraphy, which, being a common denominator with lithography, also has become the artist’s research subject.

20:00 (Room 211) - Katowice premiere of the film ”Śledztwo (Investigation)” directed by Ena Kielska and a meeting with the creators of the film.

The film is a black and white criminal, noir in atmosphere but, at the same time, it is a grotesque and even, to an extent, a black comedy. It is made with the use of stop-motion technique and the method of pixelation. The music, dubbing and special effects created in post-production imbue the whole story with an eery atmosphere.

The film was shot in the area of Silesian Voivodeship, among others, in Katowice, and was screened at film festivals around the world, where it was awarded:

- Ca' Foscari Short Film Festival Venice Italy March 2017 - Best Soundtrack Levi Award

- American Film Award New York USA July 2016 - Student Film Winner

Exposición Dual ¿Fronteras?

CreArt inaugura la primera Exposición Dual del proyecto, titulada “¿Fronteras?”, en la Sala 0 del Museo Patio Herreriano de Valladolid el 7 de marzo, en la que se presentan la instalación “Horizontes transitables” de la artista alemana Bettina Geisselmann, residente en Valladolid, y el vídeo “Where is home” de la croata Ana Kovačic, seleccionadas entre más de 50 propuestas por la comisaria Naiara Valdano. “¿Fronteras?” pretende hacer una reflexión sobre el concepto de frontera, sobre todo en esta Europa actual: ¿Qué es una frontera para ellos en este continente? ¿Cómo tratarlas? ¿Qué tipos de fronteras son las más peligrosas? ¿Cómo afectan estas a los individuos y a su forma de relacionarse con el mundo? ¿Cómo se enfrentan a estas los ciudadanos de primera clase y los de segunda? ¿Cómo vivir en un continente cada vez más abierto y, al mismo tiempo, más cerrado?
