Fokas boldly strips his model-friends down in front of the lens; yet, their poses are far from sexualized. A physical and spatial tension unfolds, as playful and surreal corporeal formations engage in a choreographic interplay of attraction, seduction, detachment, and resistance. Flirting with autonomy and vulnerability, his subjects are often witnessed as being in distress.

Sławomir Pawszak’s photograms are genetically consistent with the direction of artistic experiments focused on “drawing”, or rather “painting” with light. In form, his works are the closest to Karol Hiller’s heliographic images, albeit more for the idea they follow rather than the technique as such.

The Mikado series is the latest stage of my long-standing artistic development as a photographer, and the next step in my analysis of the creative process. For the past fifteen years, the techniques of digital image processing became crucial for my art. When working on the Mikado project, I experimented with form, focusing solely on the creative process and its medium. – Igor Omulecki

“The Last Road of the Immortal Woman” is where Henrietta Lacks is no longer alive, but not yet immortal. A liminal space separating mortality and immortality, the scientific and the emotional, the political and the personal, the metaphysical and the empirical, exploitation and recognition.

The shapes in the images are not always legible, the photographs are saturated with neon colors. They transmogrify the female body into forms that call to mind the inhabitants of coral reefs in warm tropical seas or inaccessible ocean depths. We are on a higher plane of rendering the body unrecognizable.

One of the first pieces I intended to make for this exhibition was a very large photograph of a field of rapeseed spreading across the horizon. The inspiration came from an old wives’ tale that scolded children for looking at a flowering field of rapeseed in the sun. They say that a person can be blinded by looking at bright yellow rapeseed in the stark glare of the sun. I enjoyed the suggestion of visual violence that this phrase carried with it.

For the last two years, Bownik has been documenting clothes that are part of museum exhibitions. Using the convention of museum photography – a grey background, neutral light – he incorporates his images into the sphere of objective record. However, the pictures do not fit into well-known historical narratives. The gesture of turning the clothes inside-out symbolically invokes the possibility of a different reading.
