Maurycy Gomulicki: Bibliophilia

Bibliophilia at Flickr, Bibliophilia at Mocak Museum of Contemporary Art in Kraków till 08.09.2011, Maurycy Gomulicki blog Pink not dead!.
quote [The entire project revolves around my grandfather, Juliusz Wiktor Gomulicki, and his book collection – the library of a humanist and a wayward spirit, an aficionado of curiosities and a ladies man. Books were truly the backdrop of my childhood – for the first six years of my life, I lived in a place floor-to-ceiling piled chockablock with books, often in double rows. For the next thirty-something, I was an almost daily visitor there,. I treat a library as a source and as a backdrop to let my imagination roam; as a place of manifold initiations. The smell of dust and the daydreaming about girls coexist perfectly in my consciousness. To this day, whenever I look at pornographic photographs with books in the background, I find myself deciphering the titles visible along the shelves, instead of concentrating on the ecstatically writhing bodies. Books are not only the knowledge contained therein – for me, they are above all a source of pleasure. The books and women in my life have become as much the triggers for my fantasies as the conduits of their fulfillment. My life story is full of women writers and women readers].
