Long live the senses, long live excitement! There is no room for boredom, discouragement or indolence in Dionysus’ procession. What’s more, everyone will find a place for themselves here: they can lose themselves into the joyous crowd or take the lead to impress others and themselves.
There are two major effects of Jacek Łydżba’s visit to the Print Room in the University of Warsaw Library. Firstly, there is a series of paintings inspired by the graphic art of Albrecht Dürer, and secondly, the artist’s exhibition on the premises of the University of Warsaw Library. Against the background of grey, concrete walls we will see Łydżba’s interpretations of Dürer’s motifs: plants, angels, landscapes. A bold artistic gesture and the sheer joy of colour.
