Alternativa 2012 - GDANSK, Poland

Alternativa 2012 is a project that seeks diverse modes of knowing and explores possible ways of being and acting in contemporaneity. This year’s programme comprises two exhibitions, entitled respectively Materiality and Wyspa. Now is Now.

MATERIALITY, Hall 90B
Aneta Szyłak, the artistic director, and the curators, Arne Hendriks, Ines Moreira and Leire Vergara, assisted by Maks Bochenek, have worked on Materiality as the project that explores the visual, sensual, transformative, political and scientific aspects of materials. It is a space-distributed research attempt towards material graspability, accumulation, densification and transformation, looking at its political, scientific, performative and experimental capacity. It seeks potentiality in the way the material vibrates or circulates formlessly and how it comes into shape. It explores the emotional relationship to things and softens the boundary between the body and the materials as well as the material of the body itself.

Curators: Aneta Szyłak, Ines Moreira, Leire Vergara, Arne Hendriks
Curatorial collaboration: Maks Bochenek


Festival runs from May 25 – Sep 30,2012 in GDANSK, Poland.
