Interview: Małgorzata Buczek-Sledzinska

Luca Curci talks with Małgorzata Buczek-Sledzinska during CONTEMPORARY VENICE 2018 and THE BODY LANGUAGE 2019 at Misericordia Archives.

Małgorzata Buczek lives and works in Krakow, Poland, where she graduated from the Faculty of Painting of the Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts. She is an multimedia artist who presented her paintings, drawings, unique fabric, and various installations and objects made from organic handmade paper – technology that was introduced to her by Mexican artists in 1990, in multiple individual and collective exhibitions.  She is inspired by landscapes, travels and artifacts of cultures and past civilizations. Inspirations from the landscapes, places and seen objects, she visualizes in series of paintings and other artistic disciplines.  Recently she presented the cycle of paintings “Numbers in the Mayan culture”, belonging to the series “Inscriptions by civilizations”. Małgorzata participated in over 200 collective exhibitions – national and foreign, most recently in Poland  in France and in Italy (Florence and Venice).  Since 1980 she also presented her work in over fifty individual exhibitions at home and abroad.

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Małgorzata Buczek-Sledzinska – For me art is a projection of the current tendencies for the artist, a visual record of the time in which he lives. A personal, sensitive visualization of the images of the own subconscious state of mind. It is an unwritten visual document for future generations. However, I don’t always call “an art” what artist would create. Dichamp’s Manifesto does not convince me to the end.

LC – Which subject are you working on?
MBS – Inscriptions of the Maya’s Culture.

LC – Which is the role the artist plays in the society? And the contemporary art?
MBS – The artist helps the public to pay attention to the new materials and forms in art and socio-sociological phenomena. He often undertakes political dialogue with changes in the space of problems of his homeland and the world. Some manifest their political commitment with creativity.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
MBS – Here and now, towards knowledge and the artifacts of past cultures and civilizations.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
MBS – The decision to choose the medium for the message of my artistic vision.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or as a part of preexisting works?
MBS – The presented works at the festival were created earlier.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the festival?
MBS – Yes. I accept such an open form of making art public. It gives the artist the opportunity for confrontation.

“The artist’s job is to be a witness to his time in history.” – Robert Rauschenberg
