Wednesday 21 February 2018, 6 – 8.30pm.
Storefront is delighted to invite you to the Opening reception for Watra by Luton based Polish artist Karolina Lebek.
Lebek’s work takes inspiration from the ‘watra’ (a large bonfire), built to evoke memories of things past, or to revive a sense of community. The name also belongs to the biggest Lemko festival in the world, held in the Carpathian Mountains. This annual event is a blend of old traditions and modern forms of recreation, where the stage is a meeting place and music the foundation.
Karolina Lebek will be in conversation with curator Matthew Shaul, discussing the concepts behind her work, from 7 – 7.30pm.
