“This is, what I like to call, pointing at pictures with a stick”
When Chris Dobrowolski was conceived his father bought a Triumph Herald Estate, a quintessentially-British car that itself was conceived in Turin, Italy. 45 years later, Chris lovingly repaired the car and drove it from his childhood home in Braintree, Essex, to Turin via Rome, Monte Casino and Bologna where his Polish father fought in WWII.
Part story about his father’s time as a Polish soldier and part muse on our growing materialistic culture, All Roads Lead to Rome is a touching solo show of power-points and kinetic sculptures that brings together communism, consumerism and classic car mechanics.
The All Roads Lead To Rome tour is presented by House.
“Dobrowolski’s eccentric and theatrical manner transforms ‘pointing at pictures with a stick’ into an engaging and thoroughly interesting observation”
