A home for creativity
Behind the Polish Table
The installation is a reflection of the Pavilion’s motto, „Poland. Creativity inspired by nature”.
The „Polish Table” is a unique work of art, created from the raw materials characteristic of our country, such as copper, glass, wood, aluminium, ceramics and yacht-building steel, with the joint effort of Polish craftsmen, artists and engineers.
“The emotions I had inside me went straight down into material. The result of this was that I simply cried.”

„Species used in these modules are telling individual and political stories: about the species migration of trees, about unjustified logging in Polish nature reserves, or the disappearing craft techniques.”

"When we look at a finished yacht, we see a beautiful sculpture, but when we remove this plane, we see exactly what we see in our module."
