Curator: Katarzyna Podgórska-Glonti
Project Title: EMPIRIA
Set design: Marta Wyszyñska
The installation space is made of openwork solids and their shadows. Moving through the designated paths, metaphorical corridors of our experiences between material and ephemeral forms, we become an element of the system exposed to light and the moods it creates. The system allows for interpretation from the outside and from the centre of the structure.
