Kinga Araya // Walking with Kinga

Kinga Araya’s project Walking with Kinga is based on the concept of walking and talking, which the artist has been developing over the years. The result is a multicultural activity which encompasses places in Italy, Poland and Hungary with links to the history of Saint Kinga as well as the artist herself. During her preparation for the exhibition over the period of a year and a half, the artist has talked with academics and people from different professions and different social classes, including men of the cloth. She engaged in discourse in various languages with people from culturally diverse places. In the process, she collected a record of local worship and tradition.
