 For almost 20 years, between 1995 and 2003, Barbara Levittoux-Swiderska took part in plain-air artists' residences - in Polish plenery - organized by BWA Biuro Wystaw Artystycznych (Office for Art Exhibitions) in Lubniewice near Gorzow Wielkopolski in the west of Poland. They were done in partnership with the local factory producing nylon. The factory offered their off-cuts: the scraps of plastic foil, fibres of various textures and colour, even once a collection of whole rejected pantyhose to the artists as the raw material. For two weeks in September, in an atmosphere fizzing with creativity, living together at the forest campsite on the lake, the fibre artists invited from all over Poland, Germany, Denmark, Holland and the U.S. applied their talents and outrageous ideas to the industrial scraps and created ephemeral masterpieces of playful inventiveness. These pictures are a testimony to how unique these occasions were and how much fun they all had in the process! The work shown here is site-specific and by various artists.m a paragraph.
