While the international film festival BERLINALE is taking place in Berlin, the nüüd.berlin gallery and the Polish Institute are showing the double exhibition JERZY SKOLIMOWSKI – PAINTINGS in cooperation with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute. The painterly oeuvre of the old master Jerzy Skolimowski can be discovered in Berlin until 25 February.
His name is known to cineastes all over the world - just mention titles like "Essential Killing" with Vincent Gallo and Emmanuelle Seigner or the recently released film "EO", which is nominated for the Oscar 2023 in the category "Best International Feature Film".
He describes creating images as an endless struggle. In interviews, he emphasises that he can paint with anything he finds around him. He often creates his abstract works as large-scale improvisations inspired by random situations. Although Skolimowski's painting process is repeatedly associated with performances, the artist categorically distinguishes between creating moving and static images.
