Every Wednesday, between July 6 and 27, from 5.00 pm until 7.00 pm, in select locations of Sopot, local actors will read fragments of books by Paweł Huelle, Czesław Miłosz, Marek Krajewski, Mariusz Czubaj and Zbigniew Herbert.
The books will be read by, among others: Florian Staniewski, Krzysztof Gordon, Zbigniew Jankowski, Małgorzata Talarczyk and Jacek Labijak.
The reading sessions will be accompanied by presentation of visualization entitled In statu nascendi by Przemysław Adamski and Katarzyna Kijek. It was inspired by a quotation from Czesław Miłosz referring to motion pictures: 'medium that claims the right to feature reality'.
Authors of the visualization will present the process of „in statu nascendi” rendering. They will try to capture the most ephemeral moment of creative process. The title of the work refers to transitory products of chemical reactions that cannot be isolated from this reaction. They only exist during the 'process of creation' and later vanish as a result of subsequent reactions.
The visualisation will be presented at the end of every stroll, in the Library of Sopot or the Sierakowscy Manor House, depending on the route.

1.Plac Zdrojowy (Zdrojowy Square) next to the State Art Gallery or the balneotherapy center
