P Ø L Y G Я O U N D.

Event Date: 
3 May 2014 - 14:00 to 4 May 2014 - 23:00

Polymer was a toy factory back in the soviet times. Since 1994 it was closed and was abandoned, staying silent for years, but in 2003 a new initiative arose - a group of active artists and musicians started renting and renovating the space. This way Polymer became an open art community, hosting and organizing all kinds of exhibitions, installations, musical and visual performances in a free minded atmosphere.

Today, Cultural Factory polymer is still producing independent art.
During the P Ø L Y G Я O U N D project, artists were using the whole factory as a big playground, painting and creating for own joy and fun.
All kinds of people were welcome to join the game. Street-artists, painters, photographers, musicians, builders, gardeners and even a lot ofl people that thought they were involved! :)

Art is a not ready object, it is a living process. The aim of our game is not in the result, the aim is the process itself - Playing.

  • Fresh indoor street art and group exhibitions of paintings and photography
