Event description

It is the fourth time that Our Garden invites guests to experience art together. Open to new cooperations with artists, for this year’s KRAKERS we’ve prepared, besides works already present in our garden, a cinema, a concert between plants and a possibility to talk to artists. During the event guests will be able to familiarize themselves with new and old editions of the Nasz Ogródek magazine and see new objects that will appear in the garden especially for this occasion.

Gallery description

The spot on Czysta 15 in Cracow was rented by Bogusław Bachorczyk two years ago with the purpose of turning it into an art studio. In the past, the place housed stables, a carpenter, a lady with a hen lived here, there was an antique storage, photographic studio and a xero point. None of the temporary inhabitants cared for the garden and neither did the neighbours. For many years this place just decayed. When Bachorczyk moved his studio here, he took care of the garden and refreshed the surrounding space. He painted the doors and gutters. He planted new plants from the seeds he brought from his travels to Beskidy, Ustka, Berlin, Kassel and Umr. The idea to bring the art out to the garden appeared first in 2018. A few artists, mostly from Cracow, got invited to cooperate. They’ve been asked to gift their works to the host and the garden and they’ve personally made and installed them. Objects and paintings began to silently infect the area, growing from the ground, on the doors, walls and trees. The’ve been left there forever and, as they were not always made from durable materials, they will slowly decay, purposefully written into their nature.It is a project not supported by donations or external funding, but rather came to be from the need of non-capitalistic exchange of emotions, relationships between artists and between the artists, the host and the place. This collective work helped turn around the unfriendly atmosphere of the garden and let the artists and people living in the house enjoy the beauty of the new space on Czysta. The garden is an intimate, not institutional meeting place, where people can explore art. This project is still ongoing and new artists are constantly joining it.
