Description

Galicia is a painterly excursion to a nonexistent, mythological land.

“The familiar-sounding geographical names are nothing but empty hulls of letters, retaining but a fleeting aroma of memories of a world irretrievably lost; the architectural monuments, preserved here and there, are relics of a bygone community that cannot be resurrected anymore,” writes Martin Pollack in Galizien. Here, Dwurnik takes up similar issues of memory, illusion, and recollection, confronting sentiments and literary images of places from a gone era.
