ANDRZEJ JACKOWSKI: THE VOYAGE ABERYSTWYTH UNIVERSITY ART GALLERY 2 FEBRUARY – 16 MARCH 2013 NORTHUMBRIA UNIVERSITY GALLERY 5 APRIL – 17 MAY 2013

Following showings at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery and Purdy Hicks, Jackowski's series of 60 drawings travels to Aberystwyth and Newcastle. Andrzej Jackowski writes, `This set of drawings was initiated by coming across a photograph of a man sitting in the hold of a small boat reading; a book, a letter, or perhaps a diary. He was sitting on a bench; there was a wooden table in front of him, a single bed in the corner. There was a ladder going up on deck and on the floor there was a bucket with a rope attached. The man was wearing a cap. I let my unconscious guide me; initially the images were familiar and then after a few weeks the bucket dropped to a new depth, new images emerged, new creatures, new relationships. In the hold-space of the drawings, the instrument of exploration, as well as the stories, became one.
