Process Exhibition by Kamila Szczęsna

Polish artist Kamila Szczęsna’s latest installation invited viewers to witness something generally not displayed in a gallery: the sphere between the artistic intention and the final result.

Szczęsna attempts to understand and visually depict the processes she undergoes in her creative process. Hence, her most recent exhibition was titled Process; it showed until last week at the BWA Wroclaw Galleries of Contemporary Art in Warsaw, Poland.

The focal point was an installation for which she used liquid porcelain to ‘embalm’ ladies undergarments. Eventually, as time and external factors begin to dry out the porcelain, the bulky cocoons will decompose to reveal a delicate structure.

The installation is accompanied by drawings and sketches of cognitive moments and mind projections. These frames of a brain’s inner activity are devalued by time and emotion.

Szczęsna lives and works in Galveston, Texas, which she says further complicated the ‘process’ of preparing a show in Poland.

Before I Die is a public installation by New Orleans artist Candy Chang that prompts passersby to complete the sentence “Before I die I want to…” using colored chalk. The installation was filled out in only a day and you can see sections of the completed work here. Erase. Repeat. Awesome
