In Andrew Kreps Gallery 535 West 22nd Street space, Polish artist Honza Zamojski (re) presents an exhibition as self-portrait, both literally and metaphorically. A room-sized figurative sculpture pushes and distends its way into the gallery’s main exhibition space, while a small selection of ichthyological drawings hang in the offices, creating an ecosystem inhabited by fish, fishing and bliss. The sculpture, as self-portrait, performs a triple action: measuring the space,indicating the size of the catch and displaying an erection. The passion for angling is,at one and thesametime, ametaphor for alove ofart and foranescape fromit.

A version of this exhibition was previously shown at Galeria Foksal, Warsaw, Poland accompanied by a catalog entitled Fishing With John.

Honza Zamojski's work has been featured in solo exhibitions at Arsenal Gallery, Bialystock, Poland; LETO Gallery, Warsaw, Poland; Cleopatra's, Brooklyn, New York; and Kim?, Riga, Latvia.
