REMMUS by Mikołaj Moskal
Paintings by Mikołaj Moskal
When living things bloom & molder all in a heartskip, when they expand toward death, this is what worms hear.

The paintings are bracketed by a poem each by Kuba Niklasiński (“Flows | Flaws”) and Stefan Lorenzutti (“What Worm Heard”), handwritten by Mikołaj in English and Polish.
