Until March 20, in the temporary exhibition room, the Ulma Family Museum of Poles Saving Jews in World War II in Markowa can watch the latest exhibition under the slogan “Spectacle of one work” by Sanok’s artist Arkadiusz Andrejkow. The painting was made last year, and the nature of his work is a spray on the school map.
The painting is inspired by a photograph taken by Józef Ulma in 1923. It shows the parents of Józef: Marcin and Franciszka Kluz, his sister Maria and brothers Antoni and Władysław. The basis for the painting is an school map from Slovakia, which, thanks to its wear and, in part, withdrawal from use, has become the ideal canva for the modifing of old family photography. Worned out map took on the burden of a second life.
Next to the painting by Arkadiusz Andrejkow, the original photo is presented, which served as an inspiration to create a job. The photograph comes from the family collection of Jerzy Ulma, son of Władysław Ulma, brother of Józef, who was visible in the photograph and painting, who during the German occupation, together with his wife and children, hid an eight-member group of Jews from the Goldman family.
The presented work is available to watch for every visitor
