Summary/Abstract: The author of this text analysed selected work by Professor Bogdan Chmielewski, and in particular the titular Zawiniątko, which due to its form and contents is depicted as characteristic for the mature period of the artist’s oeuvre. Chmielewski is also portrayed as the cofounder and representative of Grupa 111 Lucim. At the same time, his expressive and individualised realisations are a symptom of features shared by other members of Grupa 111, i.e. professors Witold Chmielewski and Wiesław Smużny, and in the past by Stanisław Wasilewski and Andrzej Maziec. The Professor’s objects, installations, drawings, art documentation, and para-theatrical performances, supplemented by his declarations as well as brief poetic texts, which constitute a commentary of sorts, are both inspirational and suffused with inner contents. The oeuvre of Bogdan Chmielewski refers to tradition, symbols, and universal values significant both for art conceived as a domain of life created by man and for consciously and, to a certain degree, naturally experienced daily life.
