PROPOSITION

Tel - Aviv, Berlin, Firenze | 2014 | 2015

1/1

”.In series of drawings (PROPOSITION, LANDSCAPE Borders, Pre-Face) Ciechanowski usually begins with some canonical text, typically visionary political speeches or religious poems, expressing a call for points of contact with a fleeting center of convergence or a yearning for an ultimate tipping point (The Song of Songs, poems by Sappho and Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi, or peace speeches by Nelson Mandela, Yitzhak Rabin and Martin Luther King). These voices function as a minimal and ongoing aural input, an abstract yet moving "proposal" which the body of the artist simultaneously puts into action. By Adam Aboulafia
