Found Objects Collection. A film by Jan Wierzejski.
On July 10th, 1941, after the invasion of Poland by the German army, the residents of the small Polish town of Jedwabne, committed a heinous crime against their own people. Motivated by he anti-Semitic ideology, years of peaceful cohabitation were wiped-out in one night without any guilty feeling.
From the beginning, the history of mankind has been marked by rituals of violence. Much of what we know today about tactics and weapons of war are physically discovered in places where the events took place (towns, cities and rural areas). Through these artifacts, which are in fact pieces of information, historians can fill in certain empty spaces in the books of human history. Then, we tend to rely on these interpretations in order to understand our past, giving new sense to the actions of yesterday. As the only alternative, these pieces of the past become legends which create the civilization of today.
“Z Jedwabnego My …” was a project of La Basílica Galería that invites Polish jewellers to review the facts and the past and present attitudes towards the events in Jedwabne to finally develop a jewell or artifact as a reflection on the subject. For reasons intrinsic to the exhibition, the final pieces will only be visible within the presentation space.
First show of the exhibition took place on the JOYA BARCELONA in 2014, afterward the exhibition was presented on Legnica Jewellery Festival SILVER.

Higlander Clasp Exhibition in WW Gallery (2013), curated by Przemyslaw Wanczyk. The exhibition was included in The International Festival of Mountain Folklore in Zakopane.
The clasp is one of the most important symbols of the highlander tradition. A strongly personal item, embelleshed with age-old intricate symbols, an adornment with ability to empower and safeguard wearers, is treated as a talisman, almost a magic object. Even nowadays the highlander clasp worn at the center of the chest transmits to the owner the force of the symbols and the power of precious metals. This ancient and universal dimension of jewellery addresses our essential vulnerability and attempts to overcome fear and uncertainty through wearable ornament. Jewellery in this context becomes a necessity, not an accessory.

This project depicts two parallel processes that are connected with destruction and decay, and, at the same time, lead to new creations. The photographs that document the natural processes occurring in the forest, the domain that remains beyond human interference, have been set together with the intentional processing of wood by designers. In both cases, this transformation has its specific complexity and worth.

Opening of WW Gallery in Krupówki St. Zakopane in 2013.
Przemyslaw Wanczyk created WW Gallery for sharing his passion and his approach to art, space and beauty. The place was meant to be a pause from the tedious mass production, aimed to make people stop and think about the approach to shopping. Apart from unique jewellery, the Gallery offered one-of-a-kind objects created by talented artists, craftsmen and designers who are characterised by their love of beauty, their artistic honesty, their attention to detail and their use of high quality materials and aesthetics. The Gallery was showing from 2012 to 2015.
Hasior Reincarnations – an exhibition shown in Zakopane in 2012.
The exhibition was inspired by the life and work of Władysław Hasior, a legendary Polish artist, strongly related to the Podhale region. His works, although not much understood, beacme cult pieces in the sixties and seventies. Today is clear that his original, outstanding attitude and art philosophy were outrunning its times and anticipating new trends.
Does performace need craftsmanship? Can video instalation relate to folk motives? Do surrealism and everyday objects blend together?
Przemyslaw Wanczyk showed THe HOST. The work consisted of 5 pieces of silver sterling host, each of them pointing to one of the modern “religions”. This work relates to one of the most important themes of Hasior works – Religion, belief, prayer, freedom, guilt and pain. What is the role of religion today? What are the new religions of the modern world?
The poster of the exhibition was designed by Przemyslaw Wanczyk.
