Stano Filko│Poetry on Space – CosmosJune 24 – September 18 2016, Start and end dates
This solo exhibition of Stano Filko (1937 - 2015), one of the leading figures of the Central European avant-garde, will present a selection of his early work from the 1960s and the 1970s.
The exhibition is a continuation of the project entitled FILKO - FYLKO - PHYLKO, which the SNG prepared in cooperation with the Zachęta National Gallery of Art at their prestigious premises in Warsaw in the summer of 2015. It is also based on the contrast of monumental and chamber gestures of this artist - the artworks are complemented by projects, concepts, sketches, slides, prints and archive documents as open books for reading and thinking. The thematic units are enriched by Filko's later interventions of related archive documents and newer works, since cyclical returns "in time" and the retroactive arranging of thoughts and motifs in new systems and series represented part of Filko's unique and characteristic style.
