On Tuesday, November 12th, at the Art Agenda Nova gallery, ul. Batorego 2 in Krakow will start an atypical exhibition. Every day from November 12, Forin will face the fronts of the albums he designed the covers for. Everyone interested will be able to come and do it with him or watch as he works. He will work in the gallery from 10 am to 5 pm and the whole process will be registered by the camera. One day is one cover in the form of an image on canvas 150 x 150 cm.
As he says about the exhibition: "My re-encounter with these covers will be like a mantra for me. I always talk with the artist about his album, I try to find a common language. Understanding him. It's like a conversation between a person portrayed and a portraitist. I treat CD covers as a small artistic form. I always want them to be the answer, be my subjective commentary on a given album, music, title. They are a dialogue between me and the viewers. I try to make a part of a given disc, like any song presented on it. "
During the vernissage you will be able to see finished paintings and multimedia materials that complement the whole project.
