my name is wendy
unosolo is pleased to announce My Name is Wendy, the first solo exhibition in Italy by Polish artist Marysia Gacek. By starting with an image, a specific memory, or an object, Marysia Gacek creates structures and narratives with loose connections using personal symbolism and different modes of representation. Painting, domestic objects and Internet information blend together as a visual form of storytelling: although the assembled objects may read as enigmatic, the unusual combination always offers a portal that could lead to a wider understanding.
References to painting, folk art and film dialogue with allusions to fitness, interior decoration and crafts, creating invisible lines between forms, cultural references and memories. The used materials belong to her personal life as well as to her surrounding reality: in Gacek’s landscapes we can find Polish mountains, suburban America, TV and art magazines. Objects and images from different times and places connect to unfold a new story, often woven into the materials themselves: the use of clay to allude to the characteristics of flesh, or the cotton to suggest comfort.
