Polish Paper cuts
9 December 2017 - 3 March 2018

This exhibition, curated by Justyna Pyz, brings together examples of the Polish folk art, Wycinanki, from the Horniman Museum and Gardens.

The works commissioned by the Museum in 2010 include pieces by renowned artists such as Apolonia Nowaka and Czesława Kaczyńska from Kurpie region and Helena Miazek from Łowicz.     

They are part of the Horniman Museums touring exhibition programme which seeks to encourage a wider appreciation of the World, its peoples and their cultures, and its environments.

Wycinanki were made for religious festivals and family celebrations; these designs have a set iconography, for example, cockerels for Easter.  The paper cuts on display are from two different regions: those from Łowicz are multi-coloured and made from multiple sheets whereas those from Kurpie are made from a single sheet of coloured paper.
