ALL ROADS LEAD TO ROME by Chris Dobrowolski
Art Exchange’s associate artist Chris Dobrowolski embarked on an epic road trip from Colchester to Rome in his ancient but lovingly repaired childhood car, a Triumph Herald Estate.
Part investigation into his father’s time during WWII as a Polish soldier in the Italian Campaign and part muse on consumerism, All Roads Lead to Rome brings together car mechanics, Roman Roads, the Cold War, consumerism, contemporary art theory and classical civilisation.
A simple, effective and intellectual piece, told with warmth and a twinkle.
Fringe Review ****
Dobowolski’s one man show is an hour of charismatic storytelling which invites its audience inside the Triumph Herald for a multimedia drive through his life.
