Poland's most successful contemporary visual artist, Wilhelm Sasnal's works are included in some of the most important art collections in the world - NYC's MOMA and Guggenheim, London's Tate Modern and Paris' Pompidou. This exhibit at POLIN will remarkably be the first exhibit of Sasnal's work in Poland since 2007, and it is significant that it touches on Jewish issues - a subject his art is not typically known for. Growing up in the Polish Catholic tradition under the communist regime in the shadow of the Holocaust, Sasnal confronts the irony and mundanity of Polish-Jewish relations in the everyday landscapes of his home country. Although they remain open to interpretation, these works from the past 20 years of the artist's career address the formation of a nation's identity and the politics of memory, demonstrating to the audience that each of us can create our own reality in this regard, rather than receiving an official version from the State.
