The "Backpack" Project

The "Backpack" is a collection of thirty 15x15 centimeter-sized canvas showing geometric forms which together constitute one abstract composition.
Creation of "Backpack" was inspired by the idea of artistic journey during which the artwork is displayed in variety of spaces all around the world. 

One of its elements, just like a footprint, will stay at the place of each exhibition. 
The composition is then complemented with a new, different piece consistent with the rest of the collection.
One of the elements that gets changed is the background. I treat it as a "barometer" showing my emotional attitude towards places discovered and people met. 
In the background I try to capture the atmosphere and uniqueness of each place I visit. 

My artistic journey consists of 30 displays documented with video recordings and pictures. 
This non-commercial exhibition/travel is intended to promote my idea of understanding art as a medium that crosses any barriers and borders. 

The final exhibition and the end of the project will take place in my hometown of Cieszyn, Poland. 
Exact date of this symbolic return home is not established, and my travel map will be a result of my current plans, dreams and possibilities. 
The summary of the "Backpack" will be a collection of artwork and a videoclip showing meanders of incidents, places and situations I experienced during my journey.
