Marcin Bondarowicz – exhibition in the European Cartoon Center Kruishoutem - Belgium from the 28th of January till the 2th of April 2017.


Marcin Bondarowicz - introduction to his exhibition
My works reflect the sensitivity of a child who is first astonished by the world around, then starts asking many questions, and eventually attempts to answer them through the creative process. The road to truth is full of dramatic questions: razor sharp and extremely precise, uncompromising, sometimes also drastic. I take up those questions with no hesitation; I observe, and consequently I comment on what I see. I make use of a wide array of symbols and metaphors which are the building blocks of my surrealistic world – so different, and so close to us at the same time.
Hard work began with my incurable passion for painting. I fell in love with painting as a little boy, and it has led me to the place where I am now. It is only the beginning of the road for me, and I can see no final point of destination. I am always driven by the urge to become better and better in what I do.
My works draw on the traditions of the Polish School of Posters. It was a philosophical, telegraphic type of poster, economical to the point of becoming abstract, but at the same time – aiming to exert a wide social impact. Time and the exploration of the various fields related to painting and graphic design have inspired the idea of creating functional art representing an individual type of artistic expression. The first commissions that I received for posters, and my desire to comment on some key social issues – brought me in contact with the field of illustration, and later press illustration, which has now very largely dominated my professional activity. The vast majority of the works presented at this exhibition have already been published.
Even though my illustrations have been published both in Poland and abroad, sometimes in magazines representing radically different political standpoints, what always comes first for me is “my comment on the matter”, and this is also how I approach my work.
I attach great importance to the emotions that appear between the author and the audience, at the meeting point of these two worlds. These emotions frequently provide the incentive for further explorations. Even though I cannot be present today at the vernissage of my exhibition, you will be able to feel my presence in my works, with which I am inextricably linked – I am one with them. I feel very honoured to be able to present them in Belgium – in a place from which I have received so much support. It is very important for me that I can thus share with you the world of my imagination.

Xavier Bonilla gana el Sombrero de Oro del 56 Festival de Knokke Heist, Belgica Por Francisco Punal Suarez

¿Quién no se ha hecho un selfie, y ahora más con la facilidad de los teléfonos inteligentes y la difusión que permiten las redes sociales? El selfie está de moda, desde hace años.  Es una forma de relacionarse y mostrar al mundo un instante de nuestras vidas, un estado de ánimo, un grito contra el pudor, una manifestación narcisista. Pero desde luego, el autorretrato tiene también su vertiente artística, y su presencia en la historia de la fotografía es muy antigua. Se considera al francés Hippolyte Bayard, con su famoso “Autorretrato de un hombre ahogado”, donde se hace  pasar por muerto, y realizado en 1840, un elemento temprano e inquietante en la historia del arte. En este caso, el cuerpo se convierte en una herramienta de trabajo.
Como indica Susan Bright, en su libro  "Autofocus, the Self-portrait in Contemporary Photography", Edit. Thames and Hudson, London, 2010, un autorretrato es mucho más que una representación visual mimética del artista. Realmente es una narrativa abierta a la interpretación del observador donde el artista propone su propia auto-revelación, auto-preservación y en última instancia auto-creación.
Ahora, en la 56º edición del Concurso Internacional de la Caricatura de Knokke Heist, Bélgica, el  evento de humor gráfico más antiguo del mundo, el dibujante ecuatoriano Xavier Bonilla ha ganado el Sombrero de Oro, con una viñeta de humor negro que parodia los autorretratos. Según el jurado, “la obra aborda, desde la exageración, la macabra cultura del selfie. Es una visión crítica sobre la falta de empatía contemporánea en la búsqueda de gustos. Literalmente va sobre cadáveres”.
El Sombrero de plata correspondió a un dibujo del  polaco  Zbigniew Wozniak, donde predomina el absurdo, con una mirada divertida sobre el decoro.
El Sombrero de Bronce lo ganó un trabajo del ruso Vasiliy Alexandrov ,  con una broma original, con una cuota de dolor, que critica la mezquindad y el machismo.
El premio de Davidsfonds fue a parar a las manos del belga Luc Descheemaeker, por una imagen que ya es emblemática del siglo XXI, un diseño fuera de serie, una caricatura que es un soplete: El pelo de Hitler, es un icono, y su bigote ahora se convierte en el perfil de Donald Trump. Toda una advertencia a la humanidad en este mundo convulso en que vivimos.
Al premio Sombrero de Oro le corresponde un premio en metálico de 5000 euros y fue otorgado por un jurado encabezado por su presidente Chris Dusauchoit, junto a los caricaturistas Fleur Van Groningen, Inge Heremans (Ilah), Katrien De Vreese, de Davidsfonds y Tanja Vrancken (director de producción de Bl!ndman)  quienes tuvieron la difícil tarea de elegir entre los 1754 dibujos presentados a concurso, enviados por cerca de  500 dibujantes de 60 países.
Se pronostica, como cada año,  que miles de personas asistirán a la exposición de la 56º edición de este concurso, que permanecerá abierta al público del  1 de julio al 4 de septiembre, en un pabellón del distrito Heist, muy cerca de la playa, con entrada gratuita. La inauguración de la muestra, con el nombre de Eureka,   tendrá lugar el 28 de junio con la asistencia de los dibujantes premiados, invitados, organizadores del Festival y autoridades locales.

En la pasada edición del Festival de Knokke Heist el Sombrero de Oro también le correspondió a un autor latino, el caricaturista brasileño Dalcio Machado. Con su historieta, que tiene  una fuerte carga crítica y  social, aborda, mediante el contraste, el tema de los miedos, imaginarios y reales. En el primer cuadro, en una situación cotidiana, un niño mira debajo de su cama, pues teme que existan monstruos imaginarios. En el segundo dibujo, en un país en guerra, el niño tiene miedo de un peligro real, las bombas, y usa la cama como un abrigo para protegerse del peligro que le viene encima. Sin lugar a dudas es una historieta gráfica excelente, bien desarrollada y donde Dalcio demostró una vez más su calidad como dibujante. Este era el reconocimiento número 116 de su amplia trayectoria artística.
