Between the murals run the PATH – the winning work of laureates of the previous year’s contest for the art installation. “The inspiration for this project are the rocky hills of the Tibetan Plateau – the roof of the world, the rocky road in Himalayas leading to base camp on the foothills of Mount Everest. The symbolism of the path has universal meaning in both European and Asian cultures, and it can be comprehended on many levels. Assumedly it connects people from different countries, and as a path to freedom is a common experience of Poles and Tibetans” – said the authors of the work, Mai BuiNgoc and Paulina Lis.
