The installation will be a moving kinetic form inspired by the work “Machinae Coelestis” by Johannes Hevelius (1611-1687). The object will rotate around its axis under the influence of wind force. Additionally, selected elements of the installation will rotate independently. The front and back have different graphics and colours.
The “Cosmos” installation is made of varnished sheet metal. Dimensions: approx 340 x 250 cm.
The installation is being created for the exhibition “The Moon and Sobieski’s Shield. Old Heveliana and Contemporary Art ”.
The exhibition will be the result of a creative exchange between employees of the museum, PAN’s Gdańsk Library, and artists from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw.
The opening gala will take place in the Museum of King Jan III’s Palace at Wilanów on the 28th of April at 12:00 pm
Place of the exhibition: the palace, the historical park of the Wilanów residence, and the Orangery.
