How a Forest Returns
How a Forest Returns is a story about a unique experiment which has been going on for the past 60 years and involves Kampinos Forest, where a forest biosphere has been restored on an unprecedented scale. At a time of climate crisis, such actions show the capacity for a radical ecological shift and are definitely worth examining from the perspective of art.
The exhibition is the result of in-depth research and close collaboration between Sayam Ghosh and scholars from Kampinos National Park. Born and raised in Calcutta, Sayam Ghosh has been living in Poland for the past eight years. He chose Warsaw and its environs as the subject matter of his photography projects. Fascinated by the actions taken in Kampinos Forest, he has devoted an entire project to it, summed up by the presented exhibition.
The exhibition launches the operation of Rynek 30 Gallery, a new venue for young artists whose work addresses topics that are relevant and important from the point of view of residents of Warsaw.
