 The artworks from this series were created with awe by the works of Witold Leszczyński. His films are about the loneliness of a man who somehow does not fit in with the rest. Although in all cases he is more or less accepted, he is never understood. In Leszczyński's movies, I was fascinated by the very way of presenting the nature - seemingly simple scenes with a sublime atmosphere, music or silence. In Siekierezada, for example, the main theme is an alto in the setting of a baroque orchestra (in the final part of the film played on the harmonica by main character) - it ends with "Amen" from "Stabat Mater" by Vivaldi's RV621. It fits incredibly well with the sublime shots of a sleeping, winter forest.

Selected films refer to the relationship between man and the world in a very beautiful way. The movie “The Days of Matthew” invites you to lean over  the sensitivity of others and their way of understanding the world. It encourages admiration for the grass, different shades of the world that are not spectacular or Instagram like. Konopielka, in addition to respect for nature, also shows the value of bonds built in a community. Whats more,it asks questions about the role of progress in our lives. Siekierezada shows a dialogue about the meaning of existence and the path taken by each of us.Leszczyński does not explain much to us, rather he gives us the opportunity for interpretation.

Patient indifference
As an inspiration for this series was staying in the forest areas, which were witnesses to tragic occurrences. Former death camps, group burial places, Lemkos villages, which people were killed. On all this grounds, the nature is slowly entering with covering vestiges power. In sunny, august day, the forest sounds so beautiful, and I am on the horns of a dilemma, aware of the history of those places. Endless beauty of nature leads mind astray but sight of innocent wall rests or rotten, wood cross commands to come back down to earth. I can not paint clouds thinking of Sobibór. Then again trees tempt to loose yourself in the happiness of life. Discrepancy is painful – ever grass prick heavier.

Series consists of twelve horizontal works on paper, three vertical graphics and a painting on canvas. Landscapes were made by drawing on photographies, scanning, editing, printing, again drawing and painting on then and again… Palimpsest is growing, like layers of earth in woods.

The tension. I do not mean fear or disgust. Just a little anxiety that maybe not everything is as it seems.

Ty masz mnie za głupią dzikuskę. // tekst: Natalia Ledzianowska

O tym, co przyjdzie oraz zakryje twoje zbrodnie i osiągnięcia, czyli co łączy Terrence’a Malicka i Sylwię Solak

Cykl „Przyjdzie i zakryje Twoje zbrodnie i osiągnięcia” to przedstawienie kilkunastu wizerunków natury. Każdy z nich to mieszanka uwodzicielskiego piękna i strachu. Nie wiadomo, czy są bardziej miejscem narodzin, czy śmierci. Malick to reżyser, który jest wyczulony na subtelną formę, tak samo zresztą jak Solak, która niczym zręczny operator potrafi uchwycić moment, w którym światło epicko opowiada historię o naturze. Takie podejście sprawia, że widz przed obrazem jest pobudzony i jednocześnie zdaje sobie sprawę, iż jest w tym coś ważnego, że należy być uważnym niczym, wykonując jakiś rytuał. Pomiędzy pniami drzew na pracach Solak prześwituje migające światło, podobnie jak przez witraże w katedrach gotyckich. Źdźbła trawy, próchniejące gałęzie i liście pochodzące ze świata materii mają ideowy, niemalże duchowy wydźwięk. Podobnie jak u Malicka. W „Podróży do Nowej Ziemi” zaczyna swój film od słów: “Chodź duchu, pomóż nam śpiewać opowieść o naszej ziemi, jesteś naszą matką, my, twoim polem kukurydzy, wyrastamy z twojej duszy.”
