Karolina Głusiec: Everything wrong is imaginary – how memory and memories shape drawings, paintings and films rooted in what once happened thus in the past.

In the talk I will be discussing drawing as communication and a link between the non-material memories and language and with the references to various artists paintings, films and to my own drawing and animation practice, I will be talking different ways how memories can be materialized as artworks in a way we want to keep them – often as an impossible surreal mirrors against the reality.

The title of the talk has been inspired by the Album by Lilys that has the same title that was released in 2006 : https://lilysrocketgirl.bandcamp.com
