On December 11th, at 6pm, the (AV17) Gallery invites You to the opening of a solo exhibition by Polish sculpture and installation artist Michalina Bigaj, entitled ‘I memorized it, it did not have the aroma’.
Michalina Bigaj’s recent area of interest has begun to include the sense of smell and, particularly, the problem of anosmia – a complete (innate) lack of functioning olfaction. Usually, a human being distinguishes an average of several thousand smells. Michalina Bigaj have not sensed smells since birth, neither does she have any memories related to them. ‘I memorized it, it did not have the aroma’ is a sculptural haptic installation, which becomes a playground for the senses.
The exhibition ‘I memorized it, it did not have the aroma’ was organised in collaboration with the Centre of Polish Sculpture in Orońsko (Poland) and is a part of the international exchange programme.
Michalina Bigaj’s exhibition ‘I memorized it, it did not have the aroma’ at the (AV17) gallery, Totoriu Str. 5 will be open until January 18th.
