Always There Exhibition as a part of WARSAW UNDER CONSTRUCTION festival
Henryk Stażewski was a person who would incredibly transform each space he occupied into a fully meaningful PLACE.
The exhibition “Always There” aims at defining the aura around Henryk Stażewski, recreating the atmosphere of his atelier and the impression in made. It includes statements by several people known to have been influenced by Stażewski. Words are reflected in thematically and typologically collected objects, artefacts and documents. Therefore, we are building Stażewski’s image from fragments of memories, places, material traces of presence and photographs. The image is incomplete and fleeting, but at the same very personal, and thus real. Complemented by the context of a former atelier, it reminds us a simple fact that it is people who create a PLACE.
