Announcing Igor Moritz’s Exhibition “A-un”

We are pleased to announce an exhibition A-un by Igor Moritz as MORTIZ.SÉCIO on April 21 (Sat) & 22 (Sun), as a result of his activity during his stay at Studio Kura.

MORTIZ.SÉCIO – artistic duo
Moritz and Sécio met in Bournemouth, UK and soon became aware of the constant influence in each others artistic expression.

Igor Moritz (b.1996) from Lublin, Poland is a self-taught painter with an interest in morfing the atmosphere of a space into his child like realm. He has had exhibitions both in Poland and the UK. Recently he was selected as one of the finalists of Contemporary Visions 8 hosted by Beers London and with a show in London.

Here are some words from the artist himself.

In Japan the duality between the harmonic and bizarre is embedded in the everyday life. Pairs are often used for protection, representations and symbolism. Like the Niomon symbolizes the birth and death of all things, we came to the conclusion that as a duo, we wanted to portray the contrasting feelings felt in the Japanese landscape.

Moritz and Sécio met in Bournemouth, UK and soon became aware of the constant influence in each others artistic expression.

Igor Moritz (b.1996) from Lublin, Poland is a self-taught painter with an interest in morfing the atmosphere of a space into his child like realm. He has had exhibitions both in Poland and the UK. Recently he was selected as one of the finalists of Contemporary Visions 8 hosted by Beers London and with a show in London.

Maria Sécio (b.1994) from Lisbon, Portugal has just finished her undergraduate studies in Cinematography and Photography at Arts University Bournemouth. So far, she took part in two group exhibitions, both where in Bournemouth. Her photographs have been developing from being diarist to a more painterly and romantic exploration of her subject and surroundings.

Moritz and Sécio are going to be working as a duo for the first time. Their aim is to explore a visual relationship through the use of different mediums. In order to give a broader, multi-dimensional insight into their personal world, they will be looking at one another, as both the observer and the person being observed.
