The title of the exhibition is inspired by Anna Choińska, who said “Everything is a story of a love”
The concept of the exhibition is based on four pillars: a return to being in feeling, a reminder of the narrative of what is human, an aesthetic of the elements, inspired by the connection to nature and the geomorphological location of the city of Bydgoszcz in the great forest glade and river valleys, the practice of the attentive museum, proposing different models and narratives of the present and shaping the future.
The exhibition is part of the current of the culture of regeneration, and slow art, a form of activism that makes art more accessible to a wider audience and makes the gallery more of an experience and a place for the exchange of emotions that takes place in the encounter with art.
Feeling is a form of intelligence, it is thinking through touch and thinking with the body. We are revisiting cultural discourses, sharing skills, experiences and knowledge as well as time, making space for the practice of presence and creativity – it is also an opportunity to adapt cultural institutions to times of crisis, as well as a way to practice human community and new social and economic models.
The narrative of the exhibition is also about reminding oneself of one’s resources, as each person has access to creativity and feeling. A live creative workshop is part of the exhibition, as well as an alternative tour of the exhibition preceded by an attentiveness walk and tea ceremony, and a performative afternoon with Emilia Biskupik and Ola Kozioł.
The exhibition will open with a performance conceived by Kamila Derda entitled The Power of the Womb.
