Nov 7 - Apr 12 2020
ul. Dajwór 18
Irena Pisek’s series of pastels tells the story of her family’s incredible three-year journey wandering over 12,000 kilometres from the end of August 1939 to December 1942. Her family had meant to leave home for only a moment and not stray too far away, but the war drove them into the unknown, through Europe, Asia and the Middle East. A series of pastels made by Irena Pisek and handwritten memories form the core of this exhibition.
