About the exhibition

From 3rd to 31st August 2018, the exhibition "Maps and Territories", by the well-known Polish painter Renata Jaworska, will be held at BWA Kielce in Poland. In an interview, she explains that she was inspired to create "Maps and Territories" by the sound of a bell designed by her great-great-grandfather in 1930. She studied the area where the sound of the bell was located and then painted the data on the map. This resulted in entirely new maps that reveal new structures such as audio, visual, family, and religions. In particular, Jaworska attempts to solve the problem of belonging with her exhibition. The sound of the bell and her recordings of it, are meant to provoke reflection, on topics such as family history, local traditions and religions.

Frames in action

The exhibition is presented in HALBE frames. The picture frames support the expressiveness and aesthetics of the pictures and highlight them without themselves coming to the fore. In this way, picture and frame merge to form an impressive unit.
