Post-competition Exhibition and Award Presentation

On 22 February at Laznia Centre for Contemporary Art in Gdansk the exhibition presenting the results of the 5th edition of The Outdoor Gallery of The City of Gdansk Competition was opened. The awards were presented to the authors of the winning projects: Anna Waligórska, Andrea Mastrovito and Hans Peter Kuhn during the event.

The 5th edition was realized in cooperation with the municipal corporation Pomorskie Metropolitan Rail S.A. who was the organizer of the competition. Within the competition chosen artist were to design a graphic pattern for the walls of railway stops of the Pomorskie Metropolitan Rail which will connect Lech Walesa Airport with Gdansk Wrzeszcz and will constitute a transport link between two railways: E65 (Gdynia – Warsaw) and 201 (Gdynia – Kościerzyna). The artistic graphics made in the form of illuminated perforations of the platform shelters’ walls will give an exceptional character to each 8 stops of the PMR, creating at the same time some extraordinary, aesthetical and architectonical feature to the whole new line of the metropolitan railway.

The international jury decided that the work of artist Anna Waligórska from Gdansk, was the best amongst all the competition entries. The winner of the competition received the prize of 5.000 Euros and her project will be implemented within the biggest infrastructural investment of Pomorskie Voivoidship.
