On the night will also be a unique improvisational performance by electro-acoustic
Quality wine will be offered by the Italian Studio Umami.
ALEKSANDRA WALISZEWSKA is a collection of Waliszewska’s paintings made in 2009.
The artist lives and works in Warsaw. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts with a
degree in painting in 2001. Since then, she has had around 20 solo exhibitions and participated in
numerous group exhibitions.
“Her drawings and paintings show us a studious mix of what seems like a visible influence of punk poster art with more highbrow aesthetics (the religious phantasmagoria of Goya comes to mind), plus heaps of beautifully muted colors and folk scare delivered through teens seduced by decidedly evil-eyed
animals and men facing brutal ends.”
TALVIHORROS will be giving a never before seen performance of improvisation based upon Some
Ambulance; his latest release on Benbecula’s Mineral Series.
“Some Ambulance should be the first port of call for those with even a passing interest in where electro- acoustic and ambient music is heading in 2009/10, while I can imagine the uninitiated finding lots to love too…Talvihorros’release has come from nowhere and knocked me sideways. It is not an exaggeration to say this is one of my favourite records this year.”
