People who have saved this event:


Glasgow Sculpture Studios has invited Polish artist Zofia Kulik to present her significant—yet relatively unknown—project Instead of Sculpture 1968–71.


This will be the first solo exhibition of the artist’s work in a UK institution, and the first time that GSS have presented an historic work as part of its programme.

Kulik’s project, first shown as her degree exhibition at the Department of Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Art, Warsaw in 1971, presented radical thinking about the intersection of film and sculpture, proposing a reinvention of the sculptural medium. The work consists of serialised photographic works that are grouped as narrative tableaux, rather than chronologically. This work has been shown once, and only partially, since its original presentation, yet it remains historically significant, and enduring in asking questions around the relationship between sculpture, film and documentation, still pertinent in discussions today.
