The life of each poster is so brief and fragile…
The exhibition Poster after life reflects memories of our streets and cities. This is a nostalgic project filled with longing for what has passed away. In her works, Gosia Lapsa-Malawska explores the relationship between people and art in public space.
Since 2010, she has been photographing and collecting old posters in Europe and South America. Existing posters and scraps became the starting point to create new artwork: posters, oil paintings, graphics, collages. This project brings back to life discarded posters which had previously been displayed in public space.
