Ars Cameralis Silesiae Superioris

ⅩⅦ Ars Cameralis Festival


The Garden of Earthly Delights

/7 — 30 November 2008/

Pleasures of the Garden

A world of sensual calmness. A blissful drift. Harmony. Is it truly a Paradise on Earth? Let us not decree hasty conclusions based on superficial feelings and interpretations. Let’s peek under the lining and see the land emerging from the genius triptych: Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch.

Bosch’s garden seems a closed world, separated from other worlds. Our festival garden is a consistent artistic composition, but each and every fragment leads outside the marked frames. Towards history, religion, and philosophy. Towards contexts which will have different dimensions for everyone, and finally towards pure enjoyment of association with art, which awakens infinity. The garden flourishes… The door of the garden slowly opens… We invite you  unknown wanderer, a searcher of autumn astonishments…
