This collaborative hybrid program combined a transdisciplinary training approach to post truth together with a collaborative residency finalising in a presentation as collective exhibition in the Galeria u Jezuitów Centrum Integracji Kulturalnej. These images show some images of the process materialising the exhibition.
Time for the materialisation of ideas. Out of the creation of ideas collaboratively, the execution of processes became parallel processes between some people involved taking the lead on some projects, others just executed by all participant artists and other different collaborative methods.
From painting and sculpting to collective performance and social participatory investigation were the focus techniques of the group. This was the previous materialisation process before arriving to the exhibition space in Poznan where in a few days the work will be presented.
More information about these processes will be shared in the publication of projects.
The time for creating ideas to materialise collaboratively began, the following spaces of discussion and formulation of ideas were frames of developing responses to the topic post truth. What would make sense to communicate? What kind of ideas began to be alive during this process? What were points of confluence in the common interest? What are the available tools and techniques we can apply?
The third day of the collaborative residency the program shifted from mostly discussions towards hands on active engagement. The field trip to the museum Centrum Edukacji Regionalnej Kasztelanii Ostrowskiej was the trigger where participants had the experience to be guided throughout the museum but also the period of time when this territory began to be Poland as historical archives recorded. This museum contains not only some buildings with archeological finds and history but also an island in the middle of a lake. The water of this lake preserved all those objects that can tell this story today.
After the explanatory walk, participant artists had the space to intervene from the island. This invitation to generate ephemeral artistic gestures, connecting with post truth in connection to this context, was the first active attempt to create together. Collaborations arose from this space as artists had some ideas with the task on how to execute an artistic gesture in the public space which enabled them to interact, build and perform together on the island. More information about those works will be in the final publication of the project.
