Some photos from Garden of Eden exhibition in Dortmund

I am very pleased to see my works exhibited in Dortmund. The Museum fur Kunst und Kulturgeschichte is a very nice, big museum, showing both the permanent exhibition of historical and cultural artifacts and interesting temporary exhibitions. At the same time as my "Garden of Eden" they have also a very interesting show about maps: "500 Jahr Gerhard Mercator". The opening on April 13th and the press conference day before, were both very nice and well organized and I really enjoyed my short stay in Dortmund.
Unfortunately the framed set of "Garden of Eden" was not available for Dortmund, because of the show at Solvay Contemporary Art Center in Krakow, Poland. So I sent the Museum the unframed prints and they framed them, most of them in simple frames with mats and two in historical golden frames like the old paintings.

Garden of Eden exhibition catalog

I am very excited to share with you the news about the exhibition catalog for Garden of Eden, which has just been published. It was published by the Museum fur Kunst und Kulturgeschichte in Dortmund, Germany, in cooperation with two Polish galleries: BWA in Gorzow Wielkopolski and Legnicka Galeria Sztuki. It has 64 pages and includes all the 24 images from Garden of Eden and some images from my other projects, with two texts: critical review by Prof. Dr. Pamela Scorzin and my artistic biography. The texts are in three languages: English, German and Polish. You may buy it in most of the galleries and museums showing Garden of Eden or directly from me (see the paypal button on the left side of this page). You will find some photos below.
I would like to thank here all people who helped to make this publication happen. I have to include special warm thanks for victoR gad , great artist, illustrator and graphic designer, who designed this beautiful book and for Vilpol printing house who printed it.
