From the artist: Exhibiting is an important form of my creative activities at the moment. I am looking for new areas and new spaces to arrange my art. Its distinguishing feature, balance, natural kinetism results from the influence of natural factors surrounding it. Here I had the opportunity to confront my works against the background of magnificent, high mountains, and at the same time in an urbanized area. It is an interesting challenge in terms of installation.
It is also another experience in comparing my creative endeavors with the achievements of other artists in the same exhibition areas. I am always curious about the reaction of a new, culturally shaped viewer-recipient to my artistic statement. It is always an interesting event that gives a broader reflection.
The artist and the Foundation would like to thank Mr. Arek Śmigielski for his commitment and help in organizing the exhibition.
