Miroslaw Balka at MAN_Museo d’Arte Provincia di Nuoro, Italy

The Exhibition “Sweets of Sin” by Miroslaw Balka will be open at MAN_Museo d’Arte Provincia di Nuoro on 16th of June 2019. This monographic exhibition features the work of the Polish artist a leading name on today’s European and international art scene. In his 2004 sculpture entitled 250 x 280 x 120 (Sweets of Sin), Balka reflects upon James Joyce (1882‒1941), the revolutionary twentieth-century Irish author whom the Polish artist has studied in depth over the years, seeking out reasons for mutual artistic production and biographical similarities, such as both men’s cultural background marked by a strongly Catholic upbringing. Ever since the 1960s, numerous visual artists have been strongly drawn to Joyce, finding an innovative relationship between form and content in his work, as well as a stimulus to develop art with a strong moral commitment. The Show will be open until the 7h of July.
