Mobile mural is an original project of the artistic duet from the Rusz Gallery. The artists from Toruń, Joanna Górska and Rafał Góralski, set out on their journey across the Kujavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship. This time, the artists put an emphasis on the word “together”, pointing to the fact that when we combine individuals’ potentials, we are able to achieve much more than in the case of a single person’s effort. The project consisted in inviting the inhabitants of Toruń, Bydgoszcz, Grudziądz, Inowrocław and Włocławek to create the mobile mural together. The artists prepared a mobile wall 8 m wide and 2.10 m high, with a relaxing colouring picture and large letters making up the word TOGETHER. In each of the cities the participants of the action filled one letter with their answers to the question “What do we like doing together?” and coloured the floral motives around a given letter. The action started in Toruń and then it was held in the next 4 cities of the voivodeship.
The inhabitants of our region participated enthusiastically in the creation of the mural, which resulted in a beautiful colourful picture filled with positive words. “Prior to the action, we were thinking what the particular parts of the mural would look like and how much would they differ from each other”, says Joanna Górska, co-author of the installation. “In each of the cities the participants painted only one part of the mural. We were positively surprised by the final effect. The mural is very colourful, energetic and, what’s surprising, very uniform. If I didn’t know it was painted in 5 different cities, I’d say it was done by one group of people”
The inhabitants of our region showed that despite many differences, we want and can work, create, laugh and have fun together. And first and foremost, we just like being together!
The project was co-financed from the budget of the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship.
