The Echo Dimensions project is an individual exhibition of Kamil Szpunar, a graduate of the Faculty of Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow. Its basic assumption is the desire to check a certain conviction that the creative expression - the voice extracted from the artist returns to it filtered by the world as the voice of "another" - an echo.
In this case, the search covers the area related to the relation of the language of nature to human messages, when both forms of communication enter into dialogue.
The above reflection translates into aesthetics with a minimalist and conceptual pedigree, in the set of works created when the artist tried to bridge the gap between the "classical" sculpture understood as a closed body and a new way of understanding creative expression, where it becomes important to engage space and speak for using the relationships that take place in it. The exhibition is an attempt to transfer the experience gained by the artist in the work with the landscape, in this case, the extensive role of half after the spring plowing, in the gallery area. The homogeneity and monotony of the earth, the unordered forms of nature is the ground on which the language of artistic forms becomes visible. At the same time, due to its variability, the environment has the potential to modify the creator's actions, whose works processed by time and space return as a kind of echo - the same voice subjected to modification. A similar process can be repeated in the exhibition space, where the factor of change is another creator and the ground for modifying the existing context and the tradition it runs.
In a situation in which every activity of an artist - understood as an orderly communication - can form the basis of common creative knowledge, a set of inspirations, the project is a question about artistic repetition. He tries to follow the relation of appropriating and referring to the existing context by the artists invited to participate. He makes an individual object susceptible to modification to function as a space for the creativity of others.
It is a place where the curator does not control all the meanings that can escape in different directions, there is uncertainty about what may happen, but also with openness. In the rhythm of the following weeks, the exhibition space will be a support for the intervention of invited artists. Guided by their own sensitivity and awareness of the medium in which they have to work on a daily basis, they will face the task of "fitting in" within the framework of their performance or means characteristic of artistic installations.
Adam Gruba, Tadeusz Nowa, Tomasz Prymon, Jolanta Przytuła and Michalina Rolnik take part in the project.
The project is the first of three parts of the exhibition cycle in Art Agenda Nova implemented from November 2011 to March 2012.

Dimensions of Echo
Dimensions of Echo
Echo. I celebrated them several times in a literal way in the mountains and on the vast Podkarpacie fields. By issuing a manifesto, shout, surrendering to waiting for his return. He came back processed, through time and space. Regardless of the shouted message, the echo returns with the multiplied information value.
Here lies the endless field of analogy with art, where on the basis of personality, echo echo, multi-dimensionality of unity. The creative process is a kind of echolocation. Recognition of own signals as an objective reality. This mistake is at the core of creativity. A work of art in such a process is always the limit of the artist's consciousness. However, it has the potential of Echo, in which information is smuggled, from the sphere beyond the perception of the creator.
Adam Gruba, Tadeusz Nowak, Tomasz Prymon, Jolanta Przytuła, Michalina Rolnik are artists who interfere in the space of my speech, processing it in any way. Giving it new dimensions, creating an echo from it.
