through 29 July 2011
On June 8, 2011, Parasol unit will preview a solo exhibition dedicated to the Polish artist Jakub Julian Ziolkowski. Ziolkowski’s paintings are a wild hallucinatory journey into his strange and often frightening universe. Skeletons battle soldiers in murky swamps; towers of eyeballs goggle cartoonishly; flesh peels wetly off bare bones. Ziolkowski has an unflinching attitude to the corporeal: the body takes centre stage, at once defiled and dissected.
