Project theme is the result of author´s longterm interest in fictional and literary worlds: „I wonder what is the nature of the space that is creating while we are reading literary text, listening the story, walking through the flat dreaming and remembering. Every time the spaces are created in time – it does not mean that the final spaces are linear though.“ Kostka Gallery exhibition will transform artist´s authorial text into the space form using the props and hinted labyrinth that allow to both linerary walk through the story and span it all for the first view.
