20 April–5 May
In April 2023 we will celebrate our fourth edition of VOR/WIOSNA festival and this year we dedicate the theme to Design; a variety of design practices from ceramics, fashion to product and food design. In the exhibition we will present not only creations from Iceland based artists born in Poland but also two designers of Polish origins coming from Norway. Works will be presenting different perceptions of what design is; it can be a performative dinner or an artistic research dedicated to a cleansing ritual or a magnificent vase in which the material, its form and the work done on it, is the core of the piece.
Strong connection to the environment is the “axis mundi” of the show. Water and soil, herbs and trees, researching the materials and visiting the origins of the design itself is echoing in each project and the projects that we present resonate with each other to create a harmonic show.
Within this year’s edition we will also give a nod to music; a concert with the Polish band Polski Piach as well as an performance by our artist in residency Krzysztof “Arszyn” Topolski. Both events are a part of ACT_IN_OUT a two years art project dedicated to music and theatre that Slaturhusid is a part of along with Fabryka Sztuki Łódź, Carte Blache and Theater de Visjoner from Norway. Krzysztof will also collaborate with jazz guitars, and art director of Far out / Langt út jazzseries in Slaturhusid, Edgars Rugajs and together they will perform in a concert on the 26th of April.
Last but not least Vor will also host workshop for kids from upcycling and a showcase of short animation movies curated by Ex Anima Foundation.
