Craigie Horsfield (*1949, lives in London & New York) had already photographed

Zamość in the 1970’s and was as the result the only international artist with an active

connection to the city. Horsfield lived for many years in Krakow, the black and white

photographs made at the time established his reputation as a photo-artist.

From the beginning of the 90’s he has devoted himself to collaborative projects.

In these projects Horsfield works with various media, from photography to film,

sound installation and performance to architectural concepts with changing

collaborators. For Ideal City Invisible Cities he developed, together with Reinier

Rietveld, a sound installation which can be heard in the coach horse stables.
