Fourth Art and Science Project “Sztuka Powstania Życia / Art of Origin of Life” It is a space for the influence of creative circles in the field of science and the arts. Refers to the aesthetics of the basic biological phenomena accompanying the emergence of life. The goal is to advance contemporary art and science, confront artistic attitudes and strategies, and disseminate knowledge about the biological sciences.
This is an international project that has been running since 2017. This is already the fourth edition. Yaroslav is one of the stops, the exhibition was previously held in Rzeszow, then it will go to Hungary. The choice of the city is based on collaborations with artists. For residents of Yaroslaw and for art lovers, this is another thing, because the exhibition offers different ways of presenting how the artist and the scientist think about how life arose. You can move to another dimension.
The godparents for this project are: the professor. Doctor Hebb. Adam Szewczyk From the Institute of Experimental Biology Marceli Nencki of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw and the professor. Doctor Hebb. Marek Olzinski From the Faculty of Art of the University of Rzeszow.
a. Doctor Hebb. Opening the exhibition, Adam Ziewicz spoke about how the idea came about and why:
The idea was born four years ago in Podkarpacie. We often ask ourselves: Why do we do this? I think there are three things scientists and artists have in common. First, the curiosity of the world, secondly, creativity, and thirdly, freedom of expression, research and artistic creativity. These three things are the common feature that allows us to come together. Interacting with art enhances creativity
– said the professor. Adam Szewczyk.
Why was the exhibition opened in Yaroslav?
– My artistic roots are from Yaroslav, which is why I wanted to hold an exhibition in this city. I am grateful for this opportunity
– said the professor. Doctor Hebb. Marek Olzinsky.
