Piotr Lutyński (b. 1962) is an interdisciplinary artist: painter, sculptor, author of campaigns, installations, objects and drawings, and musician. His projects intertwine natural materials such as birds’ eggs, grass, feathers, pebbles, insects and beeswax with ready-made items and abstract paintings. Since the late 1990s, he has also included live animals in his works.

On 7 February, Bunkier Sztuki presents an opening of his exhibition Buddha, Mars and the Deer, and the following day the gallery hosts a concert by Lutyński’s band Rdzeń. How do we know that what we see really exists? How do we touch the intangible and describe the full range of our experiences? Is this even possible in the face of the vastness of the universe and its multidimensional nature? These existential questions lie at the core of the paintings, objects, collages, films and campaigns held between 2003 and 2019 which comprise the exhibition. The artist’s fascination with nature, matter, quantum physics and space is reflected in the exhibition space centred around the titular Buddha, Mars and stag, biological symbols and the KR 736EJ Project – a mobile workshop where Lutyński works with guest artists.

The latest developments in art, as well as the buzz of artists and curators await us in the pavilion in the Planty Garden Ring.

The name of the municipal gallery house and the exhibition pavilion in the Planty Garden Ring make reference to the characteristic shape of the building raised in the 1960s, literally the “bunker of art”. The concrete façade, into which remnants of a historical granary were set, led to the whole being quickly dubbed “a bunker”, a name that became officially accepted throughout Kraków with time. The “Bunker of Art” organises temporary exhibitions of Polish and foreign contemporary art as well as workshops, discussion panels, seminars, and meetings with artists, curators and art critics. Regularly hosted here are also the main exhibitions of major Kraków festivals: Kraków Photo Month and the International Print Triennial, while every autumn the post-competition World Press Photo presentations are certain to attract crowds.
