An idea hidden in things

Buildings, edifices, objects. Anchored in our memory, in our thinking about cities, outskirts, in images of different journeys, in perception of a rural road, a sea shore, a terrace, a backyard. The roughness of concrete, the smell of timber, the vermillion of brick, the colour of neon. A house, a palace, a factory, a station. An arbour in the park, a gateway, a swimming pool, a springboard, a gasoline station. Light falling onto the floor, walls, the asphalt of the road. Encoded views, landscapes complemented with architecture.

An idea hidden in things

August 2011

Holy Mother!

The devil lurks behind the cross? Come to find out and hear the artist’s confession – on 22 December, in vernissage. We begin at 7:00 p.m.

Holy figures from near the Jasna Góra Monastery? Yes, but without boredom or cliché. Fantasy and a wink, instead. Jacek Łydżba deals with traditional devotional articles and plays with the sweetness of church-fair kitsch. The dress of the Mother of God flows with blood and burns with roses, while Jesus’ garments look as if they were taken from a Bollywood movie.
The latest exhibition of Jacek Łydżba’s works entitled ‘Holy Mother!’ means playing with conventions and tradition, overcoming stereotypes creatively and being free of iconoclastic gestures.
