Commentary: "International pop art blended various conventions and techniques, mixed high art with low, borrowing from mass culture as it wished. In Poland, an original home-grown version of pop art was created by Wladyslaw Hasior (1928-2000), member of the Phases Association, author of poetic assemblages, monuments and monumental outdoor sculptures. His metaphoric compositions allude to the form of liturgy, travestying the shapes of altars, gravestones and feretories. Hasior's works, betraying a fascination with kitsch, using cheap votive objects, broken toys and baubles is enjoyed all over a world which values its hidden picturesque and somewhat exotic poetry from the Polish provinces."
