THE Place - Territory MU FESTIVAL
The Place - Territory MU - FESTIVAL was designed for the university students, mostly of artistic schools, from all over Poland as a place for meeting and confrontation of artistic stances and attitudes.
The organisers decided to display the works submitted in a way which they believe to be the most complete rendition of their diversity both in its material and the formal level. Active involvement of the spectator is expected here: the individual expositions are located all over the city, often far away from each other, and the schedule is brimming with the large accumulation of events and the short life of the individual exhibitions. Following the assumptions of the organisers, everyone will be able to explore the “territory” of the exhibitions in a manner most individual and dynamic and to create own interpretations of the expositions, being able to manoeuvre the potential of spatial and temporal values, thus forming own TERRITORIES OF ART.
Exposition in the Fort of St Benedict (Lasota Hill) from 14th to 19th October; opening of the Festival: 14th October, 6pm
Spatial installations constructed by composing a variety of visual structures and making use of the existing space available for creation of a certain semantic whole. The theme of the exhibition are the relationships formed between the context (the space of the fort) and the object placed in this context.
