Museum at dawn – Karolina Breguła
During the Contexts festival Sokołowsko is bustling with activity into the late hours of night, often till the sun rises on a new day. As part of the „Museum at dawn” performance by Karolina Breguła festival participants, tired out after a long day and all-night fun, will be invited for a stroll in the woods.
A walk on the cusp of day and night is intended to be an experience on the verge of dream and awareness. Art the festival attendants are acquainted with is experienced second hand, mangled by bad recollections and delivered in a dream-like state, the meaning of which will be dependent on the memories of the participants and their knowledge of Sokołowsko.
The artist will prepare delicious sandwiches and coffee to wake the participants from the dream.
