Its My Place..
Exhibition of works presented in the Its My Place project slowly forms into shape.
Today was the day of arrangement of the space. Hall has been divided into specified areas: sculptures, paintings, installations, photography, digital prints and video. The aim was to enable the spectator to move among various works without interference with the perception of the presented works.
Each of participants tried to habitate the best place to present his works and only Peter’s clock(one of the exhibits) slowly measures the time...
Opening of the exhibition on the 3rd of August at which in the name of polish authors I’d like to invite You!
