Kuba Mikurda. An essay in space.
A discussion of three visual essays created by Kuba Mikurda & Jakub Woynarowski – “Gilliam’s Atlas” (2011), “Corpus Delicti” (2013) and “The Story of Landing” (2015). Mikurda & Woynarowski identify the priority of space over narrative in the work of Gilliam, Borowczyk, Lynch and Tarkowski and draw from their films to develop visual discourses that would properly capture their “spacialized narratives”, including maps, catalogues and 3-D models.
