The Dawn (2018-)
He had a bird in him - he felt it so, but that bird of his was strange, immaterial, unnamed, and no more bird than himself. It was drawn to things he did not understand and feared: questions that could not be answered, people with whom he had always felt unfair (...). he hated the creature within him because it only caused him pain.
Olga Tokarczuk, House of Day, House of Night
Dawn helps you feel that body and mind are one. It touches her cheek tenderly. It covers us. It can be gentle and silent despite it’s power. Jan looks at the metaphysics of the dawn’s colors through optics and uses strong visual symbols based in deeply intimate experiences. Works show the rela- tionship between human and nature, but also the theme of death, which is taboo in our culture.
