Jarek Wojcik: Museum Series - Art Collector

Jarek Wojcik, Museum Series: 0008, 2012. Acrylic on wood, 43 x 30cm

A collection of paintings seamlessly housed within faux Classical frames are made to narrate within the gallery’s walls. Wojcik’s works of art, subsequently preserved as ‘souvenirs’, denote the symbiotic relationship between the museum and object. ...Jarek Wojcik re-imagines the museum as both a lived reality and a fiction: the reproduction of an imaginary space. A place in which to read history in its forms, resonances and aporias. A privileged ambit, at once close to us, and different from our present existence, the museum is a focus for belonging and exclusion; a point of origin and return. ...
