Stas Bartnikas’s favourite place to fly to and photograph is Iceland. He believes that Iceland is one of the most photogenic countries when looked from above – the combination of ice, snow, volcanic formations, glacial rivers, beaches and ocean makes for an absolutely surreal sight.

The project “Garden” by Marta Zgierska and Mateusz Sarełło is an invitation to observe a couple in a dialogue, negotiating their relationship and their collaborative authorship. The boundaries between the two are ambiguous; obsessive, poetic and analytical. Zgierska is dedicated to systematic fragmentation and dissection of the image of her own body, but at the same time also the dissection of flowers as symbols of other women. This results in persistent acts of contradictory self-inscriptions, at the same time violent and subtle.

The concept of identity, like that of reality itself, has become amorphous and multiplicitous. The result is a fluxing world in which fixity has been replaced by the potential for a range of shifting forms. In an individualistic culture, we can assemble and deconstruct ourselves at will, with the strict bonds of old giving way to a liquid instability.

All around us are magic machines that suck carbon out of the air, cost very little and build themselves. Trees – in all their gorgeous variety and spectacular beauty – can make a massive difference to the world, if we accept one condition: we have to leave fossil fuels in the ground, where they belong.
