[3x3x3 = Container Love]
Over recent years Michael Grudziecki has pursued another idea parallel to painting. In 2011 he began the ongoing project “1,000 containers” during a stay on the south coast of Spain. Grudziecki is continually on the move, whether it is a work trip combined with exhibitions or a residency as part of a stipend. The idea for the current exhibition in Magic City was born out of the desire to pack all of his work, his material and collection of materials, tools and ideas, into a container. And he has travelled widely in the process, staging “his” three containers in three different colours on three continents, bringing them together for us in a new constellation. You can see the result in the Magic Lab.
The container has gradually become a symbol for his life as an artist. He himself sees the project as a documentation of his movements. We are happy to be allowed such a deep insight into his life.
