Event description

Wanda Ładniewska was taken to KL Auschwitz-Birkenau during the war. She was marked with the number 38091. The digits sum to 21 which, according one of other prisoners, was supposed to guarantee her survival. And she survived, thanks to the ability to make precision drawings, which was used by the nazi researchers working with the microscope. After the war has ended she worked with the Lambert Gallery in Paris and her art was her way to deal with the Holocaust. After we presented the Artist’s sculptures in 2013 we’re now showing her works on paper.

Description of the place

We operate since 2004. We promote artists, events and trends in Polish art of the XX century, focusing mainly on the 50s and 60s. Recently we’ve been developing the sculpture department which puts us in the lead of galleriec dealing with this segment of art.
