The first such an extensive presentation of the artist’s works in Poland. It brings together works created over more than three decades, starting from his early drawings up to contemporary productions created specifically for the historic interiors of the museum. The exhibition shows mythical figures from the 1980s, works created from found objects and formally disciplined sculptures characteristic of his later oeuvre. The “nerve” in the title highlights emotions, experiences and senses. It also defines the exhibition as an attempt to convey fundamental information about the practice of the artist, whose central subject is the body as a physically sensed part of human existence.
