On September 28th, at the Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo, an exhibition called “Remembranza y resignificación” by Małgorzata Mirga-Tas, a prominent visual artist, was opened. Through fabric, paint, wax, and wood, she brings visibility to those whose stories have been overlooked.
One of the pieces included in the exhibition is “May” – an artwork from the collections of the Warsaw Ghetto Museum, which is a part of the 12-piece installation “Przemieniajac świat” (eng. Transforming the world). It depicts portraits of Cejla Stojka – a Romani activist, painter, and singer, a survivor of Auschwitz, and Krystyna Gil – a survivor of the Romani massacre in Szczurowa. It aims to spark a reflection on the possibility of addressing the trauma of the Holocaust in art and the concept of post-memory in the Second and Third Generations of Survivors.
Małgorzata Mirga-Tas is a Polish-Romani visual artist, painter, sculptor, educator, and activist. She is the founder of the Romani Art movement and the initiator of the international artistic residency program “Jaw Dikh!” In 2020, she received the Paszport Polityki award in the category of “Visual Arts.”
