Poles of inaccessibility – exhibition at the ICC



Poles of inaccessibility – exhibition at the ICC

The International Cultural Centre invites all visitors to the exhibition of works by Dobiesław Gała – "Poles of inaccessibility".

This exhibition, containing the artist's new works, will be presented to the public in this form for the first time.

The exhibition is on view from February 25 to March 23, 2022.

The inspiration for the relief compositions came from the experience of time, an attempt to illustrate the fleetingness of memory and the search for metaphysical space. The works show the process of eradication of all kinds of acts of presence, events, and actions on the material and spiritual level. The series "Poles of Inaccessibility" is an attempt to illustrate the most inaccessible places on earth, where mysterious interference phenomena and traces of events occur, the consequence of which are changes in the structure of matter.

"Poles of inaccessibility" is a game of making present, of being in a space-time loop. The works visualise an impulse to search for one’s own identity and the need to name oneself. The compositions are a subtle combination of drawing, painting, and relief, realised on plates, nets, and papers structured by chemical and thermal processes, which lends them a three-dimensional effect.
