Exhibition from Tatiana Wolska

Leisure as Resistance marks Tatiana Wolska's first solo exhibition in the UK. Born in 1977, Wolska utilises recycled materials, evoking the resourcefulness ingrained in her during her childhood in communist Poland, where recycling became a necessity due to the scarcity of goods.

The exhibition will showcase some of her signature recycled bottle sculptures and several new commissions, including scrap wood sculptures, large-scale drawings, monumental makeshift hut and a mural. One of Wolska’s plastic bottles sculpture will be on display in MAC’s Outdoor Terrace.

Wolska, describing herself as a 'junk collector', breathes new life into discarded plastic bottles, salvaged timber, rusty nails and foam from old mattresses. She transforms these once-polluting materials into captivating sculptures. Wolska's drawings mirror her sculptures, crafted with ink, pen, pencil, and paint, revealing enigmatic forms with ribbed surfaces and folds.

Wolska has designed the space with a strong emphasis on facilitating and promoting meetings, workshops and discussions cantered around critical topics such as the regeneration of natural resources, climate crisis or the concept of resistance through leisure. Audiences will be invited to activate the space through community activities such as reading groups, knitting clubs, clothes swaps, repair cafés, and meditation-through-drawing sessions.
