Krzysztof Pijarski: Ex-Pozed

Art historian, photographer and translator Krzysztof Pijarski was born in 1980. He is a graduate of the History Institute and the Multimedia Communication Department of the Fine Arts Academy in Poznań. He is also a student at the ŁódĽ Film School and a Ph.D. student at the History Department of the University of Warsaw.

The work on display is the result of Pijarski's interest in museums, "where history can be recorded and reconstructed," as he puts it. Museums have the technical capabilities to re-create-visually or in the imagination of the visitor-a piece of history from individual artifacts, Pijarski says.

Poznań, PF Gallery, Zamek Cultural Center, 80/82 ¦w. Marcin St. The exhibition runs until Dec. 30.

Jacek Rykała: Paradise Lost?

Rykała was born in 1950 and graduated from the Graphics Department of Cracow's Fine Arts Academy in 1976. He is a professor at the Fine Arts Academy in Katowice, teaching drama, direction and set design.

This exhibition is a retrospective look at Rykała's work, which is linked to southern Poland's Silesia region. He concentrates on the realities and colors of urban landscapes and searches for inspiration among rundown buildings. His portrait of a nostalgic and forgotten world of secret courtyards and nooks, gates and peeling walls encapsulates change.

BWA Artistic Exhibitions Gallery in Katowice, 6 Wojciecha Korfantego Ave. The exhibition runs until Jan. 20.

The Kitchens of the Senses

This exhibition in ŁódĽ combines art, handicraft, modern design and film, all forming a peculiar story about taste, referring to both the prosaic pleasure of eating, and more refined themes of beauty and esthetic values.

Apart from a rich variety of magnificently decorated 19th century kitchen vessels, silverware and porcelain tableware, you can see modern appliances made by the Italian Alessi company, famous for its kitchenware design.

ŁódĽ, Herbst Palace, branch of the ŁódĽ Art Museum, 72 Przędzalniana St., until Dec. 31.

Monika Kacprzak: Growing up on the Equator

The exhibition shows photographs of everyday life in Uganda taken by volunteers working for the Don Bosco International Volunteer Corps.

Olsztyn, Planeta 11, 38 Piłsudskiego St. until Jan. 13.
