A PLACE IN THE SUN: An Experience of Dynamic Mapping

A PLACE IN THE SUN: AN EXPERIENCE OF DYNAMIC MAPPING, Galeria Sztuki Wozownia, Toruń, Polonia

The fruit of the contemporary world, a phenomenon of the mobility is strongly stimulated by the impact of the new technologies of transport and communication. At the same time, the society is touched by the migration crisis.

The exhibition “Place in the sun” refers in a poetic manner to the geopolitics and the worldwide economic stakes. The research study, “Chronography” by Olga Kisseleva tend to create new visual strategies thus to represent the universes transformed by the impact of the technology, economy and the geopolitical stakes. As a result, a series of maps shows that each travel/⁠journey contributes to construction of the universe’s model, as well as each map can re-⁠create the world according to the socio-⁠political portrait of the explorer. The idea of the exhibition is close to the mapping and it opens the debate around the problematics of contemporary world, to different perspectives.

The exhibition: November 17, 2017 – January 7, 2018
