Two people, two worlds. A flirt with the everyday… life on painter’s canvases. The things that are the most important to us day to day – emotions, relations, desires – has become the inspiration for two interesting, although very different, painters.

Cracovian Bożena Knecht and Vratislavian Rafał Chojnowski have for years plumbed the depths of human relationships and the more or less subtle interpersonal games.

In the exhibition TUiTAM (HEREandTHERE), they invite the viewer into their worlds, each of which has a different colour and is governed by different principles. They search for an understanding with each other, but also show the separateness of the artist as a human being through their art.
