WINDOW SPACE | Sylwia Narbutt | Motherland

04/07/2014 - 04/08/2014

invite1

ASC Window Space offers a very public platform for artists to display their work.

Sylwia is using the icon of the Black Madonna which has been intimately associated with Poland for hundreds of years.
She is especially interested in this picture, a small reproduction of it used to hang above her bed in her family home. She remembers being
scared of it as her granny told her a story that if she was naughty the scars on the Madonna will grow and the Madonna will be in
pain, the whole country could be in trouble.
Madonna comes from abroad – her assimilation is total as she has become the symbolic queen of Poland, loved and
preyed to by millions.

Sylwia looks at her own assimilation in UK. She revisits her culture and background to construct a new reality as a Polish Briton.
