    Paweł Żak - Core Curriculum and Other Still Lifes


    Exhibition open: 31.03.2017 - 28.05.2017


    „Still life in photography is a double death of things.” We recommend exhibition of Pawel Żak as a salvation. One will experience a perfect representation of reality, yet depicted in a surprisingly abstract way. Glass of vodka, flower and skull – quite a strange mix. In narration made by Paweł Żak this strange mix will change in to full story which is referring to Netherlandish masters.
