Have you ever stand on the shore looking at the infinite horizon and wonder what is beyond it?
Have you ever felt the push to leave everything behind and find out?
During the residency at Bałtycka Galeria, Luisa Spina has been developing the project ‘Conversations from the Shore’. She invited the local community to take part in 3 workshops to unpack the image of looking at the infinite horizon from the shore. The workshops were designed to facilitate dialogue. Participants were invited to re-connect to Ustka by walking, collecting found objects, taking pictures, making observations, remembering stories and recording sound. From the shore they took an imaginative journey to a place beyond the horizon to then collectively uncover the motivations that push people to leave home and explore the unknown.
The exhibition will culminate in the documentation of the workshops, audio recordings, videos and sculptures the artist made during the residency as well as the participants’ artworks inspired by ‘Conversations from the Shore’. On the 25th November ‘Conversations from the Shore’ will move to the beach for a day of activities and interactive art. Everyone is welcome to participate.
