Silence

4-24.10.2017
Schaufenstergalerie Scharf, Graz (Austria)
Curators: Elisabeth Saubach, Iris Kasper

For Schaufenstergalerie Scharf Marusińska develops a site-specific installation. The conceptual base of the installation is a quotation of Jean-Paul Sartre: 'Were we silent and mute as stones, our very passivity would be an act.' The work shows a reference to the current society without delivering a valency to it. At the moment many different subjects, which often pass into the emotional, move the world. Instantaneous a strong protest movement takes place in Poland against the current government. The so-called 'right party' and its conservative values as well as ideological images are more popular, not only in Poland, but everywhere in Europe again. Thus the question how to formulate 'against' these values and images arises. Between the active and passive resistance, activist's strategies has been formed, but is it the raving and stones flinging mob or is it the quiet opposition, freely from vandalism and scenarios of violence which can change systems with lasting effect? How can injustice and censorship be denounced? Is in this context really 'talking silver and silence gold'?

catalogue [pdf]

This exhibition reveals what lies beneath the surface of everyday reality. It shows what happens behind the TV screen, dirty window on a bus, foggy glasses, behind our back and in our preoccupied mind. Those things which we usually don’t notice because we don’t want to, we are not able to, we are afraid of or simply we don’t believe we can achieve. The exhibition is composed of two elements which were realised during a residency in Birmingham – the effect of a social project named 'Good Visibility' and artistic interposition named 'Viewpoint'. Both of them tell us that looking beneath the surface is worthwhile.
