Can the will-o’-the-wisps that will brighten the night sky show us the way? Can the flags that will flutter on a beach in Ustka be associated with any specific countries? Usually, the answers to such questions can be found in fairy tales.
Margot Sokołowska and Emmanuel Penouty will also attempt to provide the answers. Margot will look for inspiration for her “written paintings” on the banks of the local Lake Seekenmoor. Emmanuel will try to harness the wind on the seashore to set his homemade flags in motion. The two artists will work separately, but with the passage of time, their works will begin to approach and communicate with each other in order to finally be compiled into a single exhibition called Come Closer. The aim of the show is to provide reflection on physical intimacy combined with a deliberate immersion in the surrounding landscape.
