Part of the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art has been filled with folklore. An unusual combination? The work of painter Jan Vytiska is saturated with it. In his paintings, he remixes scenes from log-cabin interiors, shepherdesses, and the snowy foothills of the Beskid Mountains with the cruelty and symbols of B-horror films. A decadent painter combining folklore with mysticism, brutality, and philosophy. Works from the last three years are now presented in the exhibition The Ritual of Cursed Hearts.
