Krzysztof M. Bednarski Symbols of Life after Death: Commemorative Sculpture by Krzysztof M. Bednarski

Open 11:00-19:00. Fri 11:00-20:00, Closed Mon.       ul. Lipowa 4
The exhibition is dedicated to two recently deceased eminent artists – Krzysztof Penderecki and Adam Zagajewski. Krzysztof M. Bednarski is the author of the sarcophagus sculptures dedicated to them in the National Pantheon at the Church of St Apostles Peter and Paul. The exhibition at MOCAK will be a broader presentation of his commemorative art.
Nowadays, original funerary sculpture is rare. Krzysztof M. Bednarski has succeeded in transposing art into the context of death and its singular place of display – the cemetery. The artist has rejected functional forms and traditional, in favour of sentimental symbolism. He has created new symbols of life after death, which draw from the personality of the deceased.



Open 11:00-19:00. Fri 11:00-20:00, Closed Mon. May 20 2021 - Mar 13 2022
