Meanings

By Anna Tchorzewska

description

My name is Anna and this is my new project. I have lived in Dublin for the last 6 years. I fell in love with the contemporary art in Dublin, I got inspired by my friends who are artists and the visualization of their interpretation of the world. They help me to understand and I want to share this with you.

Meanings is a project, a collaboration between Oliver Whelan, Marcin Kowalik and Tommy Barr. It reflects our own “frames”, of who we are, where we live, the boundaries and limitations. Our narrow thoughts classifying others and judging them. Artists will try to start the dialog about the immense essence of beauty within the frame, the Meanings.
This project is a dialog, a conversation between three contemporary artists from very different backgrounds. Results can be seen 08/11/2013 in Warsaw. I need support to present it in Dublin.

Marcin expresses in his works, the parallel reality and the world on the other side of the mirror, the psychology of the human mind perceiving the reality as a simple child.

It is possible to consider Tommy Barr’s work as a continuation of Marcin’s examination. As we move from childhood and that initial consideration of the world around us, our constant scrutiny of our environment does not wane. Indeed as we begin to add layers of understanding and of meaning, we begin to realize that objects and images carry different messages dependent upon time and context.

In considering the exhibition we are confronted by what is human and common in the artists. Nationalities and other such superficial categories cease to be important. In this scrutiny of meaning the viewer is also given the space to share in the search on an equal basis, and to participate fully in the exhibition through their personal evaluation of the individual works.

I am looking for funds to cover the venue, catalog print, transport of works, publicity expenses and campaign to support future projects, expenses cover for people involved.

Support our project.

Marcin Kowalik, Oliver Whelan and Tommy Barr.

All fallowed by an interpretation of fine French Philosopher Ewelina Zwolan Gottfreund.

Marcin Kowalik

Genesis I am the first viewer of my paintings. I would like to start with the genesis of my artistic way to indicate the importance of those words in my work. I started discovering painting as such from working from nature but, with time, I channeled my interests towards focusing on a painting itself. With hindsight, my painting from nature was never just about photographic or impressionistic coping the observed nature on two-dimensional canvass. I also put effort into working on composition, achieving colour harmony of a painting and other formal issues, but still they remained marginalized.

Oliver Whelan

Oliver has also set out to look at the visual process from an abstruse position. In that he looks at art through new thinking in science. Discoveries in science have consistently influenced both art and artist from the very beginning of its history. In our time the influence of physics has changed the way we see and conceive the world. In Oliver’s case it has informed his work for some considerable time. He also has taken inspiration from past artists whose act of looking was informed by new and informed discoveries in science. Turners paintings transcends time, they pre-empted whole moments in art, he didn’t take his inspiration from the prevailing practices of his peers but looked towards sciences as a lynch pin to what reality really was. The power of light and electricity as revealed by Faraday had a profound effect on his view of reality. In Oliver’s work such individuals have equally inform his interests. Einstein’s theories on relativity and in particular his understanding of time- space, in that, both are indivisibly linked. This concept has formed a particular interest for Oliver. “There is something about painting that reflects this fact, in that the action inherent in it’s making, is intrinsic to both its sense of time and its illusion of space”.

Tommy Barr - Northern Ireland

It is possible to consider Tommy Barr’s work as a continuation of Marcin’s examination. As we move from childhood and that initial consideration of the world around us, our constant scrutiny of our environment does not wane. Indeed as we begin to add layers of understanding and of meaning, we begin to realise that objects and images carry different messages dependent upon time and context.

Meanings project

This project is a visual art event containing lectures and presentations of the meritum and the essence of artistic performance. The rendering of the artistic deliberation that makes this exhibition special is the very wide range of experience artists who possess years of research to find and give new Meanings, base on contemporary character of their art. The creators and artists come from various backgrounds of Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and Poland. Their comprehensive artistic experience and different fields of interests move the conversation onto a different level. Each one of the artists is a scientist and philosopher of his own kind. Marcin is deliberating about the spectrum of human from the very beginning “ zero point” and Alice’s World, the other side of the mirror, which is” Mirror Phase” (Marcin Kowalik) It is possible to consider Tommy Barr’s work as a continuation of Marcin’s examination. As we move from childhood and that initial consideration of the world around us, our constant scrutiny of our environment does not wane.

Oliver Whelan has also set out to look at the visual process from an abstruse position. In that he looks at art through new thinking in science. Discoveries in science have consistently influenced both art and artist from the very beginning of its history The exhibition will take you from one painting to another on a journey beyond the nationalities and other such superficial categories and these cease to be important. It gives you space to interrogate yourself about the sense and the Meanings, gives power to create a new one and face the old order of the world.

ZNACZENIE

Dyscyplinami lingwistyki, które najobszerniej zajmują się zagadnieniem znaczenia są semantyka i lingwistyka kognitywna. Znaczenie definiuje się tu jako wiązkę cech semantycznych. W takim rozumieniu znaczenie nie musi być powiązane ze znakiem językowym i jest tożsame z terminami semem i pojęcie. Z sytuacją taką mamy przykładowo do czynienia w przypadku braku w danym języku wyrazu na określenie obiektu, posiadającego nazwę w innym języku – na przykład zestaw cech semantycznych znaczenia ang. cube farm nie jest przypisany do konkretnej nazwy w języku polskim i znaczenie to można oddać tylko przez wyliczenie jego cech semantycznych: np. "biuro z dużą liczbą pojedynczych stanowisk pracy pooddzielanych ściankami działowymi". W węższym rozumieniu znaczenie przypisane jest do znaku językowego i stanowi treść przekazywaną tym znakiem w procesie komunikacji językowej.

Meanings, Essence

In philosophy, essence is the attribute or set of attributes that make an entity or substance what it fundamentally is, and which it has by necessity, and without which it loses its identity. Essence is contrasted with accident: a property that the entity or substance has contingently, without which the substance can still retain its identity. The concept originates with Aristotle, who used the Greek expression to ti ên einai, literally 'the what it was to be', or sometimes the shorter phrase to ti esti, literally 'the what it is,' for the same idea. This phrase presented such difficulties for his Latin translators that they coined the word essentia (English "essence") to represent the whole expression. For Aristotle and his scholastic followers the notion of essence is closely linked to that of definition (horismos).[1]

Parergon - frame by Evelin Zwolan Goffroud

Parergon – a frame “A painting is never finished. It is built every time someone is contemplating it and, thus, building another planes of their thoughts – projections.” With this statement Kowalik aptly points out how powerful the edge of deconstruction is, how incredibly sharp and, at the same time, delicately thin it can be. The perfect example illustrating this truth is the Derridean discourse on a “frame” that indirectly refers to Kant's aesthetics from “The Critique of Judgement”. Derrida undertakes an analysis of the structure of the boundary between what constitutes the interior of a work of art and what is external to it. The issue that actually interests the philosopher is what is connected with the value of beauty in its essence and what remains external to the immanent sense of beauty.

Parergon - rama by Ewelina Zwolan Gottfroud

"Obraz nigdy nie jest skończony, jego budowanie trwa z każdą chwilą, gdy ktoś go kontempluje, a więc nadbudowuje na nim kolejne plany swoich myśli, projekcji". Powyższym stwierdzeniem Kowalik bardzo trafnie ukazuje jaką siłę posiada ostrze dekonstrukcji, jak niebywale ostre i zarazem finezyjnie cienkie potrafi być. Idealnym przykładem ujawniającym tą prawdę jest derridiański dyskurs o ramie bezposrednio odnoszacy sie do kantowskiej estetyki zawartej w Krytyce wladzy sadzenia. Derrida podejmuje analizę struktury granicy pomiędzy tym co stanowi wnętrze przedmiotu sztuki a tym co jest wobec tego przedmiotu zewnętrzne. To, co własciwie interesuje filozofa to to, co się wiąże z wartoscią piękna w samej jego istocie, a co pozostaje zewnętrzne wobec immanentnego sensu piękna. Przedmiotem sztuki zawsze jest to, co jest umieszczone w jakiejs ramie, choćby w ramach wernisażu w muzeum lub w galerii, zawieszony w ramie obraz, czy to co jest wydrukowane w ramach tomiku poezji, czy w końcu pusta rama w ramach performance, wystarczy, że w jakiejś ramie - staje się sztuką.

Be who you want to be

It’s just that lately, I’ve started thinking about where my life is headed and how I want contribute to this world and do my part to make it a better place. I love helping others with their personal problems. People have always told me I’m an excellent listener and advice-giver, and that I am wise beyond my years. It took me a while to get to the point in my life where I feel content with myself as a person. With all my past experiences, I am able to help others, but I always felt I should be doing this on a professional level too. I wanted to study Psychology but never really did anything about it because, when I was younger, I felt I didn’t want to become a financial burden for my folks. I had this terrible excuse that I just couldn’t afford to go to college, and never even plucked up the courage to ask my folks about it for fear of rejection. In retrospect, I see that was a blessing.

Be who you want to be

Stop blaming other people for your situation. Decide who you really are. Although you have been in character for so long you might think that that is who you are stuck being, but consider that you have been trained to be a certain way from birth by your parents, and your peers. You don't have to take responsibility for other peoples expectations anymore. You are capable of so much more then the limited beliefs that have been placed on you. That includes your own beliefs as well.
