dismal sheets of dust (ślady kurzu) revisits a semi-derelict yet imposing 19th century tenement block in Kraków (Poland); a strange ruin at odds with its central location, and the artist’s childhood home. The house is re-imagined as pastiche, where the artist’s memory clashes with the building’s history as post-war public shelter for the displaced, and contemporary remnants of an escape room, functioning as ready-made scenarios.

Sława Harasymowicz is a Polish-born artist currently based in Ramsgate. Her work was presented at the Freud Museum, London, BWA Tarnów Gallery, Poland, The National Poetry Library, Southbank Centre, London, Bunkier Sztuki Gallery, Kraków, Poland and V&A, London. Her graphic novel adaptation of Sigmund Freud’s Wolf Man was published in 2012. Harasymowicz is a PhD candidate at Central Saint Martins, UAL London. 

The exhibition is part of Margate Now  2019.
