Kolaż prac z wystawy Jeremiasza Popiela.

Visual arts and illustrations fans! Two exhibitions are waiting for you at Workshops of Culture, Grodzka 7 in Lublin this month: “Bookcase – artists’ books” and “Cities of the world according to Jeremiasz”. 


Project “Bookcase – artists’ books” 

The books on display are works of art that offer readers a unique, exclusive experience that can only be found at the exhibition – the books have never found their way to bookstores and perhaps, they never will.

Artists’ books, such as these, that are beautiful, funny, deep, and unusually crafted, are finally given their chance to shine! This event offers a rare opportunity to discover previously unpublished, unique literary texts, meet the authors and get inspired for your own work.

When: 16.01-13.02.2023 (excluding weekends) from 9.00 to 16.00
Where: Workshops of Culture, Grodzka 7 Room 204 – 2nd floor
Audience: for children from the age of 5, adolescents and adults
Admission free

“Cities of the world according to Jeremiasz”

Cities of the World according to Jeremiasz” was created in 2013 and currently consists of over 120 works. The cities reveal their secrets to Jeremiasz. The show him their geometry of straight lines, puzzling perspectives, the harmony of windows, bridges, streets, and houses. He creates pieces that draw on both what is visible and what is hidden behind the surface, the tangible and the intangible.   He captures wisps of sound and scent that inspire viewers to form their own mental images of bustling cities.

As an artist with autism, Jeremiasz does not refer to specific characteristics of drawn details in the universal sense. He does not perceive the world in terms of accidental or planned human inventions. Instead, like a careful researcher, he focuses on analysing his subjects and shows his deep understanding of the geographical complexity of the world.

Because he has limited ability to communicate with the world and people through speech, his art pieces have become his personal communication channel. They serve as an effective way to express himself and his worldview, as he traverses the physical and metaphorical landscapes of the world.

When: 28 December – 17 Fenruary 2023 (Monday – Friday), 11.00-17.00
Where: Workshops of Culture, Grodzka 7 ground floor
