About the exhibition:
It is an original project created by Barbara El / Leszczyńska and performed as a part of the activities of Dyfuzja Science Club of Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk, Poland. It is set to give a message in reference to the current state of all-over-the-world pandemic and lockdowns of different levels.
This is the message to the people affected by the pandemic, from the artists creating in times of pandemic. Through the message we, the artists, share feelings and emotions. We also are in an international dialogue, as most of us come from different countries.
gARTen is a garden of art, therefore it is prepared to be seen as an open-air exhibition.
The reproductions of works are followed by QR codes which will lead the viewer to the author’s work description. This multimedia aspect is a way of transferring the authors’ stories to the place where the viewers are watching the works. In the measures of social distance, the viewer will be able to listen to the author’s voice describing the story behind the artwork, in most cases from long kilometers away.
