Landscape Geometry – sightseeing walk with Paweł Pierściński
We invite you to visit the WALKS section, where you can find a route in the footsteps of Paweł Pierściński, inspirations from the artist’s archive and a map for download specially prepared by the Towarzystwo Krajoznawcze “Krajobraz”. Bon voyage!
Intruduction to the walk:
Take a walk across the Nida Landscape Park along the route that could have been walked by Paweł Pierściński. Take your camera with you and look for scenery reminiscent of that captured by photographers of the Kielce School of Landscape: undulating chessboard fields stretching to the horizon, the rhythms of trees and balks. In Paweł Pierściński’s photographs, especially those from the ‘Landscape Geometry’ series, such elements often lose their literalness and form abstract, geometric shapes. Like Pierściński, try to find a mathematical order in this landscape.
Along the route, you will also come across various sightseeing attractions: the neoclassical Church of St. Thecla in Krzyżanowice Dolne; a steppe vegetation reserve; the Leszcze gypsum mine; roadside figures of saints typical (or atypical) for this area.
While walking, think about what Paweł Pierściński would point his lens at, in what way would he depict landscape and architecture.
