Mi Polin / From Poland

Art Works of Helena Czernek & Aleksander Prugar

 

Yellow paper daffodils – reminiscent of the real flowers that Marek Edelman, the last survivor of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, used to receive each year from an anonymous giver.

Mezuzot created from the traces left on the doorposts of Jewish homes in pre-war Poland.

These pieces are just a few of the unique works showcased in Mi Polin (From Poland) founded by the Warsaw-based art duo of Helena Czernek, a conceptual artist and product designer, and Aleksander Prugar, an artist, photographer, and filmmaker. Each piece in Mi Polin tells the story of a Poland that is revitalizing its Jewish roots while still recalling its dark past.

At the free opening reception, meet the artists behind this first Polish-made Judaica brand, and hear how they try to instill their work with the principal of “hiddur micva” – in which beauty enhances a ritual object’s positive purpose.

 

Mi Polin in Hebrew means “From Poland”. According to the legend, the word Polin (פולין)  – Poland, comes from the words Po Lin – “rest here”. A few hundred years ago Jews escaping from Spain perceived these words as a sign sent from heaven. They interpreted that as a good sign and from that moment on they started to settle in Poland.

 

This exhibit was made possible in part by a special grant from the Taube Foundation for Jewish Life & Culture.

These pieces are just a few of the unique works showcased in Mi Polin (From Poland) founded by the Warsaw-based art duo of Helena Czernek, a conceptual artist and product designer, and Aleksander Prugar, an artist, photographer, and filmmaker. Each piece in Mi Polin tells the story of a Poland that is revitalizing its Jewish roots while still recalling its dark past.

At the free opening reception, meet the artists behind this first Polish-made Judaica brand, and hear how they try to instill their work with the principal of “hiddur micva” – in which beauty enhances a ritual object’s positive purpose.

 

Mi Polin in Hebrew means “From Poland”. According to the legend, the word Polin (פולין)  – Poland, comes from the words Po Lin – “rest here”. A few hundred years ago Jews escaping from Spain perceived these words as a sign sent from heaven. They interpreted that as a good sign and from that moment on they started to settle in Poland.
