Stary Browar (the Old Brewery trade, art and business center) proved that it is definitely more than just a shopping center. From November 5th, its very own art gallery on the Courtyard of Arts holds new, exciting and intriguing exhibition. British artist Daniel Lismore already worked with names such as Vivenne Westwood or Naomi Campbell or brands like H&M and MasterCard. Now, in Poznań, he presents his creations of costumes that embellish sculptures made by the author himself (and looking like him!).
entrance to the exhibition
The creations are colorful, campy, almost grotesque – and yet seem very planned and purposed. The plates below the exhibits explain what a certain dress means and where its elements came from. You can find hats from Vivenne Westwood, an original African head cover or a japanese shirt bringing you luck or… unluck if worn wrongly. Also, at the top floor Daniel interacts with a viewer with a very simple but effective way – on the post-it papers you write/draw the answer to the given question and leave it on the wall! The question is in Polish and means: I am the artwork… And you?

Interesting fact: the sculptures don’t look at us in a creepy way. Actually, only one of them has its eyes open. Pay attention and find the one!
The exhibition will last until the end of February 2020 and at the very end Daniel Lismore will attend his exhibition personally. Until then come and get into the glitz of Daniel Lismore.
