About

Glasgow Sculpture Studios (GSS) presents a solo exhibition of new work Pleasant Setting by Marysia Gacek, born out of her one year Graduate Fellowship at GSS from November 2014 until November 2015.

 

Marysia Gacek’s work is known for its suggestive personal symbolism, using memory and arcane cultural referents that assert the transcendent possibilities of the banal. This exhibition will feature a set of paintings on white muslin curtains which run along the walls and windows of the gallery with Magritte-style trompe l'oeil landscapes and one-to-one renderings will portray what lies directly behind the curtains. Heightening awareness of the body’s traversal of a space, the curtains muffle the potential of architecture. The works propose a simulation that draws one nearer to nature through a process of pointedly obscurantist representation. The curtains will be accompanied by a number of small sculptures dispersed around the room; amongst them a deflated solid glass ball, and a two-headed snake about to shake hands with itself in perpetual self-effacement.
