Filmoteka Muzeum

Nature has been the main area of Zygmunt Rytka’s artistic activity for years. The film Continual Infinity concentrates on stones found in the rapid stream of the Bialka river in the Polish region of Podhale. That special place, to which the artist attached most of his conceptual works, provides him with an opportunity to analyse the interrelation between people and nature, and to question the effectiveness of human efforts invested in taming nature.

Lines drawn on the stones stand for the continuity of the processes where one thing results from another (smaller stones from bigger stones) and the durability of the matter. Rytka considers stones as “an unalterable record of the entire time since the beginning of the world.”
