Our local surroundings can inspire and define artistic innovation. Available materials, weather conditions, role models and craft traditions all allow for new, exciting projects to emerge. The growing interest in all that is local is becoming global.
The exhibition The Logic of the Local reflects on the impact which local elements have on Polish and Norwegian design. Both countries are proud of their creative process and respectful of the materials use. Thanks to a common ground – local folk art – the hand-made can intersect freely with the mass-produced.
The exhibition was first presented at the International Cultural Centre in Kraków.
