Materia Prima – a primal matter: on the one hand, common raw materials: sand, clay, stone, wood, wicker. On the other – a unique combination of colors, textures and materials, which are specific local landscape. Combined – create a matrix constantly present in the creative process.
Combining aerial photographs winner of World Press Photo Kacper Kowalski of objects created by Polish designers with basic and almost raw materials, curator of the exhibition, Agnieszka Jacobson-Cielecka invites you on a journey to the roots of visual design. It’s a story about a symbiosis of nature and art, a fine line between creating and reproduction, between creation and documentation – says the curator.
The exhibition is accompanied by a small presentation of toys designed by Polish artists. All have common roots: the observation of nature and respect for the environment, the analysis of the behavior and needs of children, respect for tradition and the memory of my own childhood.
