Yazan Khalili at Bunkier Szutki Gallery of Contemporary Art, Krakow, Poland

Yazan Khalili will be participating in the group exhibition A Million Lines at Bunkier Sztuki Gallery of Contemporary Art in Krakow, Poland, which opens on 26 November 2015 and runs until 31 January 2016. Organised in collaboration with the Contemporary Art Centre of Vilnius, the exhibition is a part of the XII Baltic Triennial that has been held for a couple of years in various countries such as Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Poland.


The guiding principle of the Triennial is an idea culled from an interview with the artist David Bernstein: “what is an artwork today can be something else tomorrow.” In the Krakow exhibition, 30 contributors will explore this journey towards “something else,” a vast field of yet unknown and unnamed possibilities, with the help of a single conceptual hinge – the idea of imagination.


Khalili will present his photographic series Cracks remind me of roadkills,  in which marble floors, old walls or abstract close-ups are in dialogue with events that may or may not have occurred at some point in time. The photographs are juxtaposed with extended comments that examine the meaning and consequence of what freedom of speech implies.
