The photographs of the series Kopiec Bonawentura takes its origin from a quote by french author Alfred Jarry from its play Ubu Roi (1896): «Set in Poland, that is to say nowhere.» The photographer Lucas Olivet builds a multiple and transnational answer.

Daniel Heil


In its evolution from realism to gestural abstraction, the work of Daniel Heil (*1988) demonstrates a continuous and deep commitment to the world of nature. The flowing, amorphous forms that have become his trademark seem to pulse with life, like giant amoeba. They vividly document the interaction between the painter and the canvas: a rhythmic, gestural process briefly arrested. Recent works in graphite have intensified this corporeal – even choreographic – dimension. Yet Heil’s paintings, like his small-format drawings, also radiate a meditative stillness. It is precisely this interplay of vivacity and repose that fascinates the artist.
