The 13 Group is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2019. This time we will meet face to face with the graphics of Jerzy Panek, who used to create portraits of women that were close to him or who made a big impression on him. His works are very inspiring, engulfing us in the world of allusions, tragicomedy, and unusual everyday life. They are brutally honest, mystical, simple as a man and complicated as man’s fate. Ladies from the Thirteen put Panek as their role model and they will try to tell him their stories and secrets. (Marta Bożyk)
