Wake, Not Party (Stypa nie impreza) – Barbara Cabaj

2023, oil on canvas

“Wake, Not Party” has an autobiographical quality, as the artist confronts the fear that her drink may have been laced with narcotics. The potential threat leads to panic attacks, which put an end to the carefree fun and intensify the feeling of isolation.
