Unexpected Encounters is a conversation between two artists of different generations. Their conversation began around disposable objects that became works of art almost against the intention.

For over two decades Stanisław Wejman, a devotee smoker, consuming several cigarette packets a day is painting over their health warning signs, a deliberate act of mischief, beautification, denial and defiance.

Over time his instinctive action and compulsion grew into an obsession with a mountain of cigarette packets being the testimony.

The conversation between Stanisław Wejman and Kasia Depta-Garapich led them to the subjects of intention and outcome, uniqueness and multiplicity, oval and square forms or colour versus white. Unifying contradictions are a starting point for Kasia Depta-Garapich’s sculptures that frame this show. Initially it was not expected that Stanisław Wejman’s works would be contemplated in a formal gallery setting.

The conversation continues...

Kasia Depta-Garapich, Stanisław Wejman and Belmacz would like to collect donations for ‘Magic Breakfast’.

The charity which is dedicated to giving under privileged children throughout the UK a healthy breakfast. The first 20 people to give a donation of £20 or more will receive a unique painted packet by Stanisław Wejman.
