Exhibition curators: dr Maciej Przybył, mgr Patrycja Silska
Visitors are invited to a temporary exhibition of the “Close encounters with…” series, this time focused on Biskupin – a place of magic. This original display of photographs by Marek Skubisz is presented as one of the cultural events organised by our Museum to celebrate “the year of Józef Kostrzewski”. The photos show a unique view of the best known prehistoric fortified settlement in Poland, one that was discovered by the Professor and to which he devoted many years of research.
Marek Skubisz is a history of art graduate of the Jagiellonian University, currently employed in Muzeum Żup Krakowskich Wieliczka [The Salt Mines Museum in Wieliczka], in the Departament of Art and Ethnography. His main interest is the old craft of rope-making, which he enthusiastically studies and popularises through historical presentations in Poland and abroad. He realises his artistic aspirations in photography, searching for beauty and unusual compositions in nature. His works have been shown at the exhibitions of the Grupa Twórców “Art-Klub” in Wieliczka, and at individual and group photographic exhibitions in the Archaeological Museum in Biskupin.
Honorary Patronage of the President of the City of Poznań, Mr. Ryszard Grobelny.
