Łagodny zarys nogi
pod wąską opięta spódnicą.
Unoszę.
Moje nogi.
Królestwo gam i kolorów.

A gentle line of leg
under a slender tight skirt.
I raise.
My legs.
A kingdom of gamuts and colors.

noc jak ściana
za nimi
wszechświat z obojętnymi
oczyma gwiazd
i tylko oni – samotni
w odrapanym oknie
ziemskiej ulicy

night like a wall
behind them
the universe with indifferent
stars for eyes
and only these two -alone
in a shabby window
of an earthly street

It was another Late Night event at the DMA
which I attend monthly and,
as some of you may already know,
I usually bring a new work for my project.
That time it was all about the Pop art movement with music,films,
art-making activities and opening of the newest exhibition “International Pop”.

nie rzuca się kobiet
bo płaczą
w rogu wszechświata zwinięte
gwiazdom chłodnego blasku zazdroszczą

one does not leave women
because when left they cry
bundled in a corner of the universe
they envy the stars their cool shine

Location: Balboa Park, San Diego, CA, US

Balboa Park is the largest urban cultural park in the United States, home to 15 museums and gardens. The main reason of my holidays there was sunshine and sugar white beaches though. San Diego has more than 300 days of sunchine per year and more than 70 miles of Pacific Ocean beaches. After 5-day stay, just before leaving for Los Angeles, I decided to visit The Museum of Photographic Arts located in Balboa Park. This picture was taken just before the visit.

Pod tańcem
złotych lamp
fruwają nisko
proste anioły pragnień (…)

Underneath the dance
of the golden lamps
the simple angels of desires
fly low (…)

self-portrait with legs II
(August 21, 2015)
Location: Dallas Museum of Art, TX, US

It was another “crowded” Late Night at the Dallas Museum of Art.
We travelled through the decades of the 20th centuary,
starting in the 1920s and ending in the 1990s, with music,
tours, films and so much more.
Ah, what a journey!


About (à la Vivian Maier) project:
I wish to look at myself in all reflected streets
and places I will be passing by.
