I am really happy to announce that in July I will be one of six LOGOGRAPHERS working at the artist residency in the Contemporary Art Gallery in Opole.
The “Logographers” project is organised by the Contemporary Art Gallery in Opole (PL) and covers a study stay between 8-19 July 2013 and an exhibition between 18 July and 11 August 2013.
In the project will take a part artists from the Opole region (PL), the Central Bohemian Region (CZ), Rhineland-Palatinate (DE), and Burgundy (FR).
Some words about the project:
The title of the project and its main conceptual axis refer to the Greek logographers (…)
he Greek logographers will be an inspiration for the project participants; their actions will be freely interpreted by artists invited to the Contemporary Art Gallery in Opole. The participants, each arriving from a different part of Europe, will bring the experiences, subjective impressions, fascinations for the places they have visited / seen in their lives, to share them with the audience and other participants of the project. During their artistic stay in Opole the artists will use the tools provided by the modern visual arts to create new legends and stories about the cities and geographic / virtual spaces they’ve seen, and the places they inhabit daily (…)
An important element of an artistic residency in Opole will be the regular meetings with the local community and interaction with artists from the Opole region at a special meeting place (…)
The logographic technique will be used to create “chronicles of stories & events”, which will be shown as an exhibition at he Gallery of Contemporary Art in Opole.
