Osiowski Marcin - [Flaga] [2021-08-25_01], 1988, [technika], 180x141cm - [fot Adam Gut] 20


"The flags tell a story both of the artist’s life and the evolution of his painting style, and about the changing fates of contemporary Polish history and the moral values followed by Polish society. These colours, which are also national symbols, result from a social consensus – as do “the national virtues.” They are not part of any logical order, but belong in the field of language games, as proposed by Wittgenstein".

Katarzyna  Piskorz, excerpts from the catalog accompanying the exhibition "This is not a flag"
