Beksińscy

On the night of February 21 st, 2005, the well-known painter, Zdzisław Beksiński, was murdered in his apartment. A dozen or so stab wounds have been found on the body of the slain. To this day, many people close to the artist remember this cool-sounding, laconic message coming from the radio. That is the end and the beginning of the story of the Beksinski family.

About the performance

On the night of February 21 st, 2005, the well-known painter, Zdzisław Beksiński, was murdered in his apartment. A dozen or so stab wounds have been found on the body of the slain. To this day, many people close to the artist remember this cool-sounding, laconic message coming from the radio. That is the end and the beginning of the story of the Beksinski family.

Beksinski is a play which, in a non-linear manner, presents the story about loneliness and inability to express one’s feelings, but also about love, which is the source of acceptance and understanding in the face of most irrational behaviours and attitudes. It is a story about art that consists not only of exploring one’s own subconsciousness but also in escaping from oneself.
