Putting a selection, The shows are based on selection of his pieces from the monographic exhibition of Wacław Szpakowski’s work organised by the Culture and Art Centre in Wrocław in 2016. Created in the period of 1900-1951, Rhythmical Lines are drawings based on a single unbroken line – mesmerising, rhythmical, and quasi-labyrinthine forms of visual and temporal nature.
