reCYCLING vol. 2 - YES to sports, YES to art

On 1 September 2012 the second edition of the action reCYCLING took place at the Museum. The participants not only had a chance to freshen up their bikes, but also to widen their bicycle know-how, visit the exhibition Sport in Art and test their prowess in the Schwinn Cycling marathon. The street-art collective Massmix was the special guest.

You can find a detailed description of the idea and the event in the gallery under the first edition of reCYCLING: galeria


This was an opportunity for a few dozen cyclists to change their bikes beyond recognition. This was achieved using spray paints, stencils, stickers and the like. Not only did the participants revamp their vehicles, but they developed their creative side and great fun was had by all!
All the participants took part in the competition Two Wheels – Millions of Colours, for the best painted and decorated bike.


The My Bike My Life competition for the most striking bike metamorphosis finished in the audiovisual hall. The audience were able admire photographs of the prize-winning bicycles and other interesting two-wheelers.


In beautifying their vehicles during the action reCYCLING the participants were given a helpful hand by members of the Massmix collective. There was a sample bank provided, for everyone to find an example to inspire a customised bike design or a one-off design to put on a wall provided especially for the purpose.


The Schwinn Cycling Marathon involved a group bike-in: pedalling away on stationary bicycles in rhythm with upbeat music, under the watchful eye of professional instructors from the ENERGYM Fitness Club. Piotr Szmyt, Artur Podwysocki and Paweł Janas led the three-hour long session, during which the participants could test themselves against others or against their own prior performance, or just test their own prowess and stamina.


Whilst the parents were busy painting their bicycles, the little cyclists attended a workshop.
While visiting the exhibition Sport in Art, children looked in the works displayed for wheels or circles, under various guises. The materials collected during the game were then used to produce unusual works.
