The first stage of the Biennale, consisting of events such as artist meet and greets, workshops and film screenings, has come to a close. Two of this year’s works are on display in the city and an exhibition telling the stories of all the Biennale pieces is available for viewing at Traffic Design HQ.
The piece is on display on 15 Polska Street, on a cold room building of the Lacpol trading company.
At the beginning of the collaboration with the Dutch studio, we encouraged them to reference the shipyard and its history. We were delighted to discover that, instead of using one of the local ship or street names, they chose to approach the problem in an indirect manner by quoting a Nick Cave’s song titled 'The ship song' in which the ship is a poetic metaphor – explains Monika Domańska, a member of Traffic Design.
Mural is located in the industrial area of the Gdynia's port at Kadłubowców Street.
