During The Hague Contemporary Art Weekend, Page Not Found presents Pavilionesque, an exhibition around the magazine created by acclaimed artist Paulina Olowska.
Founded in 2015, the Pavilionesque magazine is a collaborative, performative and theatrical effort in the field of artistic publishing. In its search for unpublished materials connected to theatre, performance and puppeteering, Pavilionesque is an active archive of contemporary and dramatic arts.
The third and latest issue of Pavilionesque, copublished by the Walker Art Center, focuses on the extraordinary nature of the grotesque and its modern manifestations. It playfully proclaims itself GROTESQUE – CARNAVALESQUE – BURLESQUE – EPIDEMIC – DANSE MACABRE – ARABESQUE. The publication features artworks, interviews, essays and a grotesque novel.
For The Hague Contemporary Art Weekend, Page Not Found unveils a theatrical installation, choreographed by Paulina Olowska in collaboration with sculptor Zuza Golinska. Together they created a singular podium, where Pavilionesque stands as the main thespian figure. Basking in the glow of golden curtains, this character crawls and teases, to a soundtrack composed by Jacek Sienkiewicz based on Roland Topor’s poetry.
Entrance to the exhibition is free. Reservation of a time slot is required for the opening weekend, taking place 8 to 11 July.
