12-17.05.2023 11 am – 8 pm


The main object of the exhibition will be a composition by Mateusz Deryniowski (diploma at the Academy of Fine Arts 2021) consisting of 100 paintings 30 x 30 cm. The artist, taking the soil from the home garden as a subject and moving it to the studio in a plastic bag, begins to discover the multitude of meanings it carries. Earth – soil, by combining with the structure of a green garbage bag, suddenly revives many discourses ….. Deryniowski’s composition will be accompanied by other paintings by the Young from the Academy of Fine Arts and workshop games conducted by a student of the University of Agriculture.


Zofia Weiss Gallery, operating as a part of the Wojciech Weiss Museum Foundation, closely cooperates with the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, of which Weiss was a professor and a rector. It directs its attention to the youngest generation of artists from this university, providing them with patronage and curatorial support. The gallery attaches great importance to the dialogue between art and culture of today and the past. It also conducts a discussion with disturbing contemporary phenomena. With a large space at its disposal, the gallery organizes individual and collective exhibitions, the annual Zimowe Salony MÅ‚odych (Winter Youth Salons) from the Academy, and participates in many cultural projects.
