Is the name of an event that took place last week in the border town of
Cieszyn, in Poland.
Organised by Serfenta in collaboration with Norwegian partners, it is part of a wider project to research baskets and makers in both countries and it brought together outdoor inst
exhibitions and an internation al conference. I
was invited along with Jette Mellgren, JanJohansen and Carlos Font
to create outdoor pieces. Jette and Jan
worked on the (northern) Polish side of the border and Carlos and I worked in a
sm ales all public park with a pond full of water lilies
in the !
In re Czech Republic ality it was only a footbridge without
form alities that separated the two teams.
Strapping tape was sourced for us from Castorama, by the car load.......
allation of the ‘fountain’
could not have been achieved without the help of the brave Marek M alesza
– the pond had some big fish in it! My thanks go to him, also to Paulina Adamska Malesza, Ania Krezelok and everyone else at
Serfenta for all their hard work on this event
and for inviting me to be a part of it.
