13:30 – 16:30 Open doors day at the Copper Leg Art Residency. Katarzyna Pitek and Jonathan Stavleu present their art. Guest performers are Erik Alalooga and Janno Bergmann.
Katarzyna Pitek is a painter from Poland. Her works are primarily figurative paintings. Thus, the main subject is a human treated sketchily, marked only with color spots or a barely outlined line. For her, an oil painting is like a quick note, an impression.
In September 2022, she defended her artistic diploma with honors at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. In addition to painting, she is also fascinated by artistic glass. Her diploma consisted of the main part – glass works “Notes on explorations” and from the painting cycle “Movements”.
At the Copper Leg Art Residency, she’s working on a large-format painting that will record her stay here.
Jonathan Stavleu is a Dutch artist. His practice is mostly focused on making site-specific installations. For the Copperleg Residency, he wants to explore the relationship between archeology and abandoned industrial structures. Possibly leading to old 20th-century structures being displayed in an archeological context.
The guest performers will be this time Erik Alalooga and Janno Bergmann. Tandem presents the cooperation project “Cleaning Voice” born in January at the Copper Leg Art Residency.
See you on Saturday!

13:30 – 17:30 Opening of the summer season at Copper Leg Art Residency, sound art event and Copper Leg Cookbook presentation.
We will start our summer season with a sound art event where the list of performers is very dignified, and sound bathing should satisfy more refined tastes. Completely composed works will be performed, as well as more performative, accrual and snappy sound bouquets. In addition, we are pleased to present the Copper Leg Art Residency Cookbook, a catalog that summarizes the residency’s activities in 2017-2018. Better late than never!
