Posters for Bik Van der Pol "Far Too Many Stories to Fit into so Small a Box"
The project is based on the collection and archives of the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art. The title of the exhibition is inspired by a work of the artist Lawrence Weiner placed on the façade of the building in the 1990s, which has become the institution's unofficial motto. Bik Van der Pol critically examined - from the vantage point of outsiders - its history as well as take on board its founding myth and remind of Wojciech Krukowski, the creator of its concept in the early nineties.

According to Wojciech Krukowski, founder of the avant-garde theatre Akademia Ruchu [Academy of Movement], posters constitute a theatrical space where the production, distribution and consumption of knowledge is synthesized in the form of a "performative sculpture". Fontarte studio designed a series of large-format posters with quotations selected by the artists from the script. The posters function as visual markers and as moments in spatial choreography. Fontarte created a new typeface, called 2Square, inspired by the archival prints of the Ujazdowski Castle and the performative character of the exhibition.
