Pawel Kruk
‘‘‘1001 trifles (after Cezary Bodzianowski)’’’
Takes place at the queue to get in to Anne Frank house, Prinsengracht 263-267, Amsterdam
5 May 2012 10am – 3pm


In front of the National Museum was a huge queue for tickets for the exhibition From Monet to Gauguin ”. Bodzianowski took place at the end of the queue, patiently waiting until he comes close to the box-office, then he asked a person from the end of the queue to take his place. In this way he gave up his place to a few people.

More about PAWEL KRUK

“I am a person that challenges viewers’ expectations around the intersecting spheres of art and life. I focus less on the development of a characteristic style and more on the way in which an activity can itself become a work of art. I am interested in well-crafted interactions, in performances that take endurance or extremity as their point or points of departure, and in objects that have totemic and archival significance. I am always in pursuit of a very specific kind of tension, the tension that comes from the fresh interplay of ideas. For me process is primary because it is where the spirit of inquiry and antagonism flourish.”
