The next exhibition at the Dizajn BWA Wrocław gallery is devoted to the plant design. The particular kind of design art, which is floristry, expresses feelings and emotions by means of floral arrangements. This intensively growing field, often associated with floristics as well as other areas of design, has its own theories, different directions and schools. Every two weeks, Polish Flowers exhibition will present a set of floral installations prepared by the well-known Polish florists: Dorota Kwiotek, Joanna Rospondek, Zygmunt Sieradzan, Kwiaty&Miut.
The Polish Flowers exhibition is also dedicated to the local history of Wrocław associated with floristics. The Old Town, and especially Świdnicka Street, used to serve as an arena for a unique event – the Wrocław Flower Festival. In the 1960s-80s, each year on 22nd of July, the streets of the Old Market Square were crowded with colourful processions full of floral arrangements and special installations. The graphic side of the festivities was in charge of Wrocław artists (Eugeniusz Get Stankiewicz, Tadeusz Ciałowicz, Jan Jaromir Aleksiun, Roman Rosyk, performer Andrzej Dudek-Dürer, Mieczysław Zdanowicz, Elżbieta Wadowska, and Mirosława Bernat).
