What does going back to the roots of art entail? This question is addressed by the artists gathered in the exhibition who represent different generations and countries, and whose search for artistic identity has led them along a path of transcendental and mystical art.

It is the very need to express the sacred that initiated the creation of arts, where a magical, mystical view of the world brought the need for completion, for enchanting nature into drawing-diagrams, symbols and rituals which evolved over time into different disciplines of art, and also into religion, philosophy and science.

The artists taking part in the exhibition are: Rafał Borcz, Małgorzata Borowska, Urszula Broll, Dolorosa De La Cruz, Arkadiusz Danovski, Orryelle Defenestrate-Bascule, Sylwia Górak, Joanna John, Ruben van Klaveren, Amanda Koelman, Rafał Kosela, Krzysztof Linnike, Dariusz Marszałek, Mateusz Niedbał, Izabela Ołdak, Marcin Owczarek, Marek Przybyła, Ivana Ranisavljević, Paulina Sadowska, Andrzej Siek, Anna Sieńkowska, Erwin Sówka, Ewa Szczekan, Andrzej Urbanowicz, Nynke van Zwol.
