Why “Made in Poland”? I like it to be about searching for coordinates, asking about identity, about the cultural space – a place for a meeting.
About affirmation of that space. About pushing the limits of understanding…I want this exhibition to be about a process. I interested in structures and textures, but I am much more interested in the mystery of human vision. What happens – how it happens. I´m also interested in spirituality, especially its Polish variation. The key to this collection is the history of searching, to be able to tell about this fascination, about searching for a painting and searching with a painting. Made in Poland is the effect of searching for Polish trails in the art of naming. Because paintings are a form of naming. Adding outlines to important and unimportant thoughts and events. It an attempt at asking about one own identity with a collection of pictures, it also an effect of fascination with the attractiveness of Polish culture – my key to the world; but it also an effect of my rejection of “Polack redneckness” on one hand, and a more realistic rejection of the escape from “Polish-ness”… Piotr Jargusz studied at the Academy of Fine Arts (ASP) in Krakow, at the Faculty of Painting, and then at the Faculty of Graphics of the Pedagogics Department of the ASP in Krakow.
