Silent Memorial - The Saga of Grybow Get surprised by the past


Arkadiusz Andrejkow Born 09/05/1985 in Sanok, south-eastern Poland. Graduated Artistic Education studies at PWSZ in Sanok and Department of Art at Rzeszow University, diploma in painting gained in 2010. His areas of creation include painting, drawing and street art.


'Silent Memorial' 'The surfaces, upon which I place my paintings, to me are almost like imgages themselves. I like their rawness and naturalness. I focus on fast painted portraits, which makes them somewhat transparent. Stains and discolorations on the raw concrete or the rust on the old carriages, together with delicate chiaroscuro built with aerosol spray, create a unique form of each of the depicted characters. I deem the surroundings of the work as equally substantial.'


'Saga Grybรณw' is a new formal organisation of the activists that have worked voluntarily to commemorate regional heritage for 10 years already. We focus on discovering, uncovering, perpetuatig and sharing forgotten and neglected strands of regional history, strengthening and rebuilding connexions between people and the land, as well as interpersonal and intergenerational relations. In the land of Grybow there were three cultures intertwined: Polish, Jewish and Lemko, forming and telling together one 'Saga of Grybow'.


'The Saga of Grybow'

ICONS

VICTIMS

ORDINARY HEROES


'The Saga of Grybow' Since 2010 we are strongly enaged, through direct meetings and also via social media, in collecting and publishing interviews, memories, stories, digitizing and sharing old photographs, some of them individual, but also entire collections of photographs, documenting life of our region in the past. We focus not only on the iconic characters, about which we are taught at school, but also on 'ordinary day heroes' and forgotten victims. Our idea and aim is that the colletion of thousands of copies of old photos which is under our custody, gathered thanks to tens of people connected with Grybow, dispersed on different continents, will be embedded into public space of our land, on the walls and wooden boards, to memorialize and testify about our rich heritage in surprising and charming way.
