Enigmatisch erscheint uns die Figurenwelt von Dorota Jurczak. Menschen, Wesen, Vögel tauchen in diesen Bildern auf. Meist sind sie vereinzelt. Mit ihrer oft starken farbigen Präsenz behaupten sie sich in einem häufig monochrom dargestellten leeren, uferlosem Umraum. Seltener charakterisieren Möbel oder andere Gegenstände den Ort. So jedoch in ihren aktuellen Lithografien für Provinz. Eine androgyn erscheinende Person mit spitzer Nase, rund geschminkten Wangen, und Haartolle lehnt oder stützt, gleich einer Karyatide oder vielleicht doch „nur“ in Gedanken versunken an einem tempelartig aufgebauten Stapel aus gemusterten Matratzen. Einmal überragt er sie turmhoch und ein anderes Mal bietet er ihr ein schützendes Dach über dem Kopf. Es ist, als möchten ihre Figuren an die Worte des österreichischen Schriftstellers Karl Kraus (1874 – 1936) erinnern, der sagte: „Selbstbespiegelung ist erlaubt, wenn das Selbst schön ist. Sie erwächst zur Pflicht, wenn der Spiegel gut ist.“

Dorota Jurczak hatte Einzelausstellungen bei Sies + Höke, Düsseldorf, 2019, der Bergen Kunsthall, 2017, dem Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, 2016, der Fundacao Caixa Geral de Depositos – Culturgest, Porto / Lisbon, 2015, Lucifers, Brussels, 2013, Loraini Alimantiri Gazonrouge, Athen, 2009, Marquise Dance Hall, Istanbul (mit Abel Auer), 2008, The Slimy Trail of Slug and Snail, P.S.1 MoMA, New York (mit Abel Auer), 2007.

The figures we encounter in the world of Dorota Jurczak are just as enigmatic, if in a different manner. People, creatures and birds appear in these paintings, usually alone. Often represented in striking colours, they stand out against the endless, empty and frequently monochrome background. On rare occasions, furniture and other objects characterise the setting, as is the case in her current lithographies for Provinz. Caryatid-like – or possibly merely lost in thought – an androgynous figure with a pointy nose, round, rouged cheeks and a quiff leans or props itself up against a pile of patterned mattresses that resembles a temple, sometimes towering above the figure, other times offering a roof over its head: protection. It almost seems as if Jurczak’s figures want to remind us of Austrian author Karl Kraus (1874-1936), who said, “Self-reflection is allowed, if the self is beautiful. It becomes a duty if the mirror is good.”

Dorota Jurczak‘s work was exhibited in single-exhibitions at Sies + Höke, Düsseldorf, 2019, Bergen Kunsthall, 2017, Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, 2016, Fundação Caixa Geral de Depósitos – Culturgest, Porto / Lisbon, 2015, Lucifers, Brussels, 2013, Loraini Alimantiri Gazonrouge, Athen, 2009, Marquise Dance Hall, Istanbul (with Abel Auer), 2008, The Slimy Trail of Slug and Snail, P.S.1 MoMA, New York (with Abel Auer), 2007.

With our new editions by Donna Huddleston (b. 1970, Belfast, lives in London) and Dorota Jurczak (b. 1978, Warsaw, lives in Brussels), we are introducing two artists whose works often seem to exceed boundaries, adding theatrical, literary and cinematic aspects to their art, for example.

Donna Huddleston’s meticulously detailed drawings take a closer look at representation conventions in plays, often showing figure compositions that seem staged, with actions that are indicative of dramatic events, while place and time are never truly defined. Gestures – such as the gloved hand with fingers outstretched, sometimes clasping a phone receiver, other times not – “velázques-esque” costumes and prop-like objects – rifles, telephone cords, metal waist chains and necklaces with crystal pendants – may appear in various works, in whole or in part. They are the thread that runs through Donna Huddleston’s work, emphasising its narrative nature. At the same time, these accessories from various epochs seem to codify, rather than clarify, the action and locations of the drawings. Now and again, titles, texts or combinations of drawings may help interpret the work, sometimes hinting at contemporary events. In the two-part drawing titled “The Instant” – the drawing that our hand-coloured fine art print is based on – Huddleston combines the image of a woman’s torso – evidently on the phone, as indicated by the old-fashioned cord running over her right breast – with the mirrored image of arcade architecture bathed in moonlight. Timeless and stark, the architecture is reminiscent of a famous, modern ruin in Scotland, the brutalist St. Peter’s Seminary in Cardross.

The figures we encounter in the world of Dorota Jurczak are just as enigmatic, if in a different manner. People, creatures and birds appear in these paintings, usually alone. Often represented in striking colours, they stand out against the endless, empty and frequently monochrome background. On rare occasions, furniture and other objects characterise the setting, as is the case in her current lithographies for Provinz. Caryatid-like – or possibly merely lost in thought – an androgynous figure with a pointy nose, round, rouged cheeks and a quiff leans or props itself up against a pile of patterned mattresses that resembles a temple, sometimes towering above the figure, other times offering a roof over its head: protection. It almost seems as if Jurczak’s figures want to remind us of Austrian author Karl Kraus (1874-1936), who said, “Self-reflection is allowed, if the self is beautiful. It becomes a duty if the mirror is good.”


Dorota Jurczak‘s work was exhibited in single-exhibitions at Sies + Höke, Düsseldorf, 2019, Bergen Kunsthall, 2017, Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, 2016, Fundação Caixa Geral de Depósitos – Culturgest, Porto / Lisbon, 2015, Lucifers, Brussels, 2013, Loraini Alimantiri Gazonrouge, Athen, 2009, Marquise Dance Hall, Istanbul (with Abel Auer), 2008, The Slimy Trail of Slug and Snail, P.S.1 MoMA, New York (with Abel Auer), 2007.

Donna Huddleston‘s work was awarded numerously and was shown internationally e.g. at Drawing Biennial London, 2021, Simon Lee Gallery, New York, 2020, Drawing Room, London, 2019, 2013, Viva Ultra, Mackintosh Lane, London, 2019, C.R. McBerny, Berlin, New York, Manchester, 2018, Reading Museum, 2017, Camden Arts Centre, London, 2016.

Besides her new edition (archival fine art print, two parts, individually revised with coloured pencils), Donna Huddleston will be presenting a selection of her drawings, while Dorota Jurczak provides an impression of her printing workshop with four new lithographies and a series of unique test prints.
