A visit to Naples – Part 1

15 March 2017
Justyna Stasiewicz

There is a place in the south of Italy, where the mighty Mount Vesuvius rises above the densely inhabited area. A place where people appreciate life with such passion and reverence, as if every day was to be their last.

It is a place where at every step we meet the images of saints decorated with photographs of people whom they have in their care. It is a place where a stranger will spill the salt under our feet for luck- and then will demand a payment for it. In the shops you will find shelves laden with red horns, wide-eyed owls and hunchbacked grandfathers. And every crossing the streets will remind an arcade computer game.

Welcome to Naples – a bustling city. Loud, a little wild and at the same time full of wonderful culture, art and rich tradition.

On Friday, January 13, at the YES Gallery located on Paderewski St 7 in Poznan, an exhibition was held presenting the projects of graduate students from the Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz. If you are curious about what this place and the works presented looked like at the opening ceremony, sit back, read and enjoy.

A very interesting exhibition took place in a beautiful building Galeria Willa at the Wólczańska St. 31 in Lodz on September 22, 2016. The exhibition consisted mainly of jewelry made by former students of the School of Fine Arts (now the Strzemiński Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz), and from 8 unique exhibits signed by Helena Kowalewicz-Wegner.

Two weeks ago I had the great pleasure of interviewing five jewelry artists: Marcin Tyminski, Bogumił Bytomski, Arek Wolski, Paweł Kaczyński and Krzysztof Roszkiewicz, who in 2001 founded an artistic group, with a catchy name, SIX.

Amber in the Museum of the Earth in Warsaw

Amber is a material which possesses a hidden potential of thousands years stopped in time, and… a little bit of magic. About how unique and inspiring the stone is, you can find out by visiting the Museum of the Earth in Warsaw, where two very interesting exhibitions are taking place at that moment.
