PIOTR KOWALSKI

The Mirror
The Time Machine

April 28 - May 26, 1979

The artist is showing this work at the uptown gallery at 33 East 74th Street.

The pieces exhibited are based on the two basic parameters of the real world: space and time and the reversal of their symmetry. French artist, Piotr Kowalski comes from a background of mathematics and architecture. His research in electro-magnetism, tension, expansion, and gravity are vehicles used to free scientific knowledge in his art.

THE MIRROR gives the viewers an image of themselves as others see them with the right and left restored, contrary to the normal mirror-image. Standing approximately seven feet tall and spinning, it creates a space around itself without a preferential direction; wherever you are, you see only yourself as the center.

TIME MACHINE is a tool that for the first time permits one to manipulate and reverse the direction of time in its most social form, speech and sound.
