Circling Around the Clock Tower: A Visual (Her)story of People through Time
Abstract: The essay “Circling Around the Clock Tower: a Visual (Her)story of People through Time” discusses a vision of time and history in a picture book by Iwona Chmielewska, a contemporary Polish picture book artist. Inspired by the artistic credo of the Themersons, the analysis focuses on the unconventional form and multimodal character the book. Its meaning resides in the interdependence of image and word, and in sophisticated and playful visual metaphors that encourage active and critical response. In her book about Toruń the artist constructs a multifaceted fictional world which becomes a narrative of cultural memory, but also a personal vision of the city’s history.
