Quarks Elephants & Pierogi

The award-winning book introducing Polish culture to English language readers has been transformed into a vivid and whimsical exhibition.

“Quarks, Elephants & Pierogi” is an original and glamourous exhibition of illustrations taken from the English-language book “Quarks,
Elephants & Pierogi: Poland in 100 Words”.

The exhibition”Quarks, Elephants & Pierogi” is a visual tale about the Polish language made up of the book’s illustrations, arranged in curious
and original ways, such asneons embroidery, sculptures, textiles and . Can you distil the essence of the country into just 100 words? We think so in this English language book. Each chapter describes a selected word embedded in Polish landscape, history and culture.

The book’s illustrator, Magdalena Burdzynska, a painter and graphic designer, conjoins various means of visual expression with plain
geometrical forms.
