Sławomir Marzec - Walka dobra ze złem

Sławomir Marzec – Good vs Evil

Exhibition opening January 24th 2015 (Saturday), 6 p.m.
Open until Febuary 8th 2015 (Tue-Sun, 12a.m.-7p.m., free admission)

The battle between good and evil have been an inspiration for the artists for centuries. In art it is depicted as a strife of the fundamental forces that decide about our lives and destiny, although it has taken slightly different forms in every epoch. How do we perceive the battle between good and evil? How to notice it in the hustle and bustle of the radical changes when everything is constantly changing into everything, and at times also into its opposite? Is it just a myth, or is it continuing, although it often goes unnoticed? Or maybe in the meantime, its outcome has already been decided? For these questions and dilemmas I am trying to create a space and time.
