The Zone of Silence, installation by the Gallery Refektarz in Kartuzy
Project was realised in Kartuzy, near the dwelling of Cartusian monks. I bandaged 18 old trees growing along the alley of Philosophers in Swietopelk forest, at the Monastery Lake (jezioro Klasztorne w Kartuzach). I reffered to the history of Cartusian monks, who lived centuries ago in Kartuzy, in solitude- each monk had a small, seperate house. Severe rule of life of Kartusians monks obliged them to live in silence. 18 wrapped trees are referring to the whiteness of monks clothes, who used to contemplate, walking in silence along Monastery Lake alley.
