Works of Igor Mitoraj
– A Dialogue Between Art and History

Beata Klocek Di Biasio

Pierwsza w literaturze światowej monografia poświęcona biografii artystycznej i sztuce artysty

One of the objectives I want to further in this book is to show the dialogue of Christian and classical elements in Igor Mitoraj’s art, to demonstrate the evolution of his iconographic program: from mythology to Christian theology, via the Christianisation of pagan myths. The elements, while conflicting, combine to provide the main source of inspiration for Mitoraj’s art. This art owes its exquisite power and beauty to these two ancient, Judeo-Christian roots of Europe. Igor Mitoraj’s oeuvre will help highlight the extremely interesting and important dialogue of contemporary art and history.
