Centre of Polish Sculpture in Orońsko
Orońsko is located 120 km south of Warsaw, 180 km north-east of Krakow, 15 km south-west of Radom. Visitors can see here exhibitions of contemporary art, visit the 19th c. interiors of Józef Brandt’s palace, or just rest in the historical gardens and observe the work of the artists in residence. The Centre of Polish Sculpture consists not only of exhibition space in the museum’s building and in the winter garden, the chapel and the coach house, but also of casting, blacksmithing, ceramics, and carpentry workshops. Moreover, Orońsko holds a collection of Polish sculptures and acts as a centre for artistic documentation with its own library. Artworks of prominent artists, such as Magdalena Abakanowicz, Tony Cragg, Krzysztof M. Bednarski, Jarosław Kozakiewicz, Maciej Szańkowski and Thorsten Goldberg fill the Sculpture Park. After a tiring tour of the premises, it is possible to book a lunch at our cafeteria or have a cup at our café.
Come and visit us!
POWER OF NATURE. HENRY MOORE IN POLAND.
21 April – 9 September 2018
Museum of Contemporary Sculpture, The “Orangery” Gallery, Sculpture Park
The Centre of Polish Sculpture in Orońsko is now presenting an exhibition of one of the most prominent world sculptors and a master for many generations of artists of the 20th century. The organic, flowing form of Henry Moore’s works set in the landscape is the artist’s trademark and, at the same time, a symbol of his extraordinary talent of combining art with nature. Along Barbara Hepworth, Moore was the driving force behind the prominence of British sculpture in the last century. Not only is his name mentioned in one breath along such 20th c. artists as Jean Arp or Osip Zadkine, but he is also seen as belonging to a group of the greatest sculptors of all times, such as Michelangelo or Donatello.
The Centre of Polish Sculpture in Orońsko, in cooperation with the Henry Moore Foundation Perry Green, UK, has organised a presentation of 23 works by the artist. Moore’s two monumental pieces, Oval with Points and Knife Edge Two Pieces, exposed in the park, have never been shown in Poland before. We are also presenting what is Moore’s trademark, i.e. a number of his reclining figures or animalistic works, but also more abstract sculptures, such as a model to the large-format Sheep Piece. Set against the display of Moore’s works are sculptures of Polish 20th c. artists who drew inspiration from the English master: Alina Szapocznikow, Magdalena Więcek, Alina Ślisińska, Tadeusz Łodziana, Barbara Zbrożyna, or Henryk Wiciński, Anna Dębska, Adam Procki, Maria Pinińska-Bereś and Ludmiła Stehnova.
