Communing with nature and the nature itself are soothing.
So is painting, the process of reconstructing reality by means of artistic expression.
Creativity helps build resilience.
Resilience is the resistance, flexibility and strength necessary
to survive the crisis, get up and move on.

In memory of my father Tomek.
And for my daughter.
Katarzyna Szeszycka

The exhibition is, thus far, the most comprehensive showcase of the series of paintings and films by Katarzyna Szeszycka dedicated to the artist鈥檚 father who passed away four years ago. The title has been inspired by the title of a book by the French neuropsychiatrist Boris Cyrulnik, a promoter of the concept of 鈥嬧媟esilience. The French word resilience denotes resistance, flexibility, elasticity, adaptability and strength necessary to survive a crisis, get up and move on…
