As Nagrobki , we opened 3 individual exhibitions and participated in at least 4 collective exhibitions - 0.00191886 exhibitions per day.

authors: Maciej Salamon, Adam Witkowski
curator: Stanisław Ruksza
co-ordinat: Anna Sienkiewicz-Rogaś

Nagrobki use minimal resources in the maximum way. The exhibition juxtaposes Maciej Salamon's monumental composition of The Last Judgment, filled with necropolis iconography of death and the inevitability of today's apocalyptic premonitions and fears (including ecological or socio-political ones), with the group's latest painting and site-specific works created for the show at TRAFO. They are complemented by a new musical interpretation of Krzysztof Penderecki's Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima.
