Guided tour in Polish of War and Un-peace exhibition conducted by Daniel Echaust
- Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art invites to a guided tour in Polish through The Influencing Machine exhibition conducted by an educator Daniel Echaust.
The series of thirty-six canvases under the shared title War and Un-peace was created in response to Russia’s attack on Ukraine in February 2022. These works recall classic anti-war artworks, such as Jacques Callo’s etchings, The Great Miseries of War, created between 1629–1633, during the Thirty Years’ War or Francisco Goya’s prints, The Disasters of War, created in the years 1810–1815, during Napoleon’s invasion of Spain. Wyżykowski’s paintings refer directly to events currently unfolding in Ukraine. This is emphasized by the titles of two triptychs from this series: Bucha [Bucza] and Mariupol. Nevertheless, their implications are universal – they depict the tragedy of war, its victims, and perpetrators.
