"Drift" is a post-painterly visual work, created in time and space by Karolina Bielawska. Space is a given: it is the interior of the Wizytująca Gallery. Time is measured by the recipient who wanders through the exhibition. Made of interventions in architecture and artefacts – paintings, post painterly objects – "Drift" is designed, however, not so much as an exhibition of works, but as a sequence of visual events staged by the artist. Consequently, the works are not displayed, but rather they take place in the gallery; they shape both space and the viewer’s experience. It is not possible to see this exhibition not participating in it at the same time.
