The aim of the exhibition is to show the connections between the world of nature and art. The presented photographs of insects, both from Poland and from around the world, give us an opportunity to fully appreciate the unusual creations of nature. The colours, forms and shapes of nature became a source of inspiration for artists and architects. There are two approaches to the exhibition. One aspect is simply taking the aesthetic pleasure from admiring these astonishing photographs. Reading the extended descriptions, on the other hand, will broaden your knowledge of the beautiful creatures presented and of the artistic contexts in which they may appear. These interdisciplinary texts were prepared jointly by a biologist and an art historian.
