THE PARADOX OF THE PROVINCE (Paradoks prowincji)
Languages of publication
The point of departure for this article is composed of two brief texts by Federico Fellini and Slawomir Mrozek referring to the phenomenon of the province. Upon their example the author depicted the titular paradox of the province: the fact that in order to actually perceive the province and put it to creative use one must abandon it and view it from a temporal and spatial distance. In this artistic phenomenology of the province the myth of departure encounters the myth of the return. In both texts the province reveals itself as a true and animating source of creativity.
