Apollo w budowie (Apollo in The Making) is our new project in collaboration with National Museum in Kraków. Our Artistic Director, Piotr Ostrowski, who previously made the 3 windows to the Wyspiański Pavilion, decided to recreate one more of Wyspiański’s greatest artworks, Apollo: the Copernican Solar System.
It was a composition of 3 windows realised in 1904 for the Medical Society House in Kraków. Unfortunately, the central piece suffered severe damage during the II World War, and the 1972 reconstruction turned out to be rather inadequate due to lack of resources.
We are working with the artist’s original sketches and designs, following them as closely as possible. Even materials for our reconstruction will be brought from the same glassmill in Lamberts, Germany. The final effect will be displayed on the autumn exhibition in the National Museum.
