Photo Ryszard Czernow

We remind you and invite you to visit the Silesian Museum in Katowice, where for less than a month, because only until 07.05. you have the opportunity to get acquainted with the work of the lecturer of the Kieślowski Film School, prof. Ryszard Czernow.

The exhibition "Ryszard Czernow Vanitas 2023" is a multi-meaning collection of works whose author moves between creation and destruction, using the motif of vanity, known from the Middle Ages, but above all the Baroque, symbolically contained in the visual layer of the works. In his works, the artist focuses on matter, creating pictorial stories about its disintegration and absorbing evidence of human existence. In this way, Czernow shows the viewer the fossils of what we know, what is close to us but has passed away. - Kamil Myszkowski, curator of the exhibition

As part of the ongoing exhibition, an author's meeting is being organized, it will take place on April 22, 2023, so we cordially encourage you to visit the website of the Silesian Museum for detailed information on the possibility of participating in the event. The meeting with Ryszard Czernow will be combined with the projection of the sonovisual composition entitled "The spirit of matter", a multimedia presentation in the form of a cinema projection.
