Krakow Photomonth’s ShowOFF Section: ANNA ZAGRODZKA - DOB1000609 exhibition

Anna Zagrodzka produced her DOB1000609 project during an internship at Dobrzelin sugar factory, while at the same time working on her engineer’s thesis at Łódź University of Technology. The artist traces the production process. She keeps a journal in which she conveys scientific data in visual form. She synthesises forms of architecture, machines and processed materials. She blurs the boundary between scientific research and art, reducing industrial reality to meditative film forms.

In the DOB1000609 project, scientific documentation takes on a personal character. The idea of unity is fulfilled. The tension between the mechanical and rational and the intuitive and metaphysical vanishes. Most interesting is the combination of these two worlds. Looking at Zagrodzka’s works, we see her accomplishments and the structure of the factory as an inextricable part of the universe.

Curator: Igor Omulecki

Anna Zagrodzka (born 1991, Warsaw)

She is a student of photography at Łódź Film School and at the Faculty of Biotechnology and Food Science at Łódź University of Technology. In her work she experiments with form, combining photography with video and sound. She has served internships at Whitworth Art Gallery and Manchester Museum, as well as at Zachęta – National Gallery of Art in Warsaw.

Krakow Photomonth: JOANNA PIOTROWSKA - FROWST exhibition

In her Frowst series, Joanna Piotrowska’s focus is on family and intimacy. As with 5128, an earlier series, the surfaces of these images—elegiac black and white photographs that emanate peace—allow one to consider the possibility of different outcomes. Their essence is not immediately discernible. Lack of attachment is one of many plausible versions of events.

Here is “family” in all of its different configurations. There are siblings, parents, and children—all brought close in a way that, at first glance, appears artificial. And yet it is without a doubt intimacy we are seeing, only one that has hardened. Piotrowska has created a visual treatise on what binds us, humans. She isn’t dealing with one-sided closeness, but rather the matrix of connections within which two (or three or four or an infinite number of) relatives, bonded by notarized kinship, express a great love toward each other, but also an even greater aversion. In these photographs, an element of unquestioned intimacy is tainted with an air of reluctance, oppression, boredom, and a barely noticeable hostility.

In this exhibition, Frowst is complemented by photographs drawn from two other installations, s.w.a.l.k and Hester: suffocating images of ugly interiors; rooms which feel like cages, and animal pens which bring dark houses to mind. Nothing is as it should be or, perhaps, everything appears as it truly is, situated somewhere between a visible reality and one that is imagined. Piotrowska’s images do not transpire on the surface; they venture deeper, to a place rarely accessed by photography.

What strikes one immediately is the lack of clarity with regards to feelings and meanings. What’s more, these photographs lack any embedded auto-commentary. Piotrowska releases her ambiguous work and simply allows for it to be displayed and viewed. That shimmering of senses combined with the precision of each frame is the main source of strength in Piotrowska’s photographs. What is captured in those photographs could well be considered a form of strangulation, an act of lifting one up or holding one down against one’s will. There are unwanted kisses and undesired looks. At its most optimistic, Frowst allows us to witness a tender caress, a simple kiss, a shared look exchanged between those who are close to each other, and who allow for such intimacy. Conflict between those portrayed is transferred to viewers: there is no clear-cut answer as to how to interpret these photographs. (A shiver-inducing uncertainty.) That is where the power of Joanna Piotrowska’s art resides.

Joanna Piotrowska, photographer based in London who gained an MA from the Royal College of Art. Her work has been seen in numerous group shows in Spain, Poland, Latvia, Russia and UK. She has been included in Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2013 at ICA, Family Politics at Jerwood Space, What Love Got to do with it at Hayward Gallery Project Space. Recently she had her solo show as a part of Emotional Resources at Northern Gallery of Contemporary Arts in Sunderland and a solo show at Southard Reid Gallery in London. Joanna Piotrowska won a major award to have her first book - FROWST published by MACK Book which is distributed internationally. She has recently been awarded Jerwood/Photoworks Award.

MATEUSZ SAREŁŁO - SWELL

Mateusz Sarełło is one of the laureates of Grand Prix, Fotofestiwal 2015. His project Swell is going to be displayed in ART-INKUBATOR between 28th May and 7th June 2015.

Swell

Road.
Winter.
Void.
Void of everything that is important. I am trying to think about the “road.” I cannot. I am completely exhausted. All in all, I am going only because of the weather. The prospect of wind, snow, and my flashes on the beach did not let me sleep. Besides, I am afraid of the few days of thinking only about Her, and this way I will have the Baltic Sea. My Baltic Sea. Instead of.

“Swell” is a story of a break-up and of unaccepted loneliness. At first it was supposed to be a documentary project about the Baltic Sea. A plan was drawn up and the places to be visited were marked on the map. During the trips to the Baltic I was accompanied by my girlfriend, until the moment of our parting. The parting changed me and I was no longer able to continue the project according to previously designed plan. I started going back to the places where we were together. Here the project ends, and a personal story begins.

Anna Grzelewska - Julia wannabe

Anna Grzelewska is one of the laureates of Grand Prix, Fotofestiwal 2015. Her project Julia wannabe will be exhibited in ART-INKUBATOR between 28th May and 7th June 2015.

Project shows growing up of my daughter Julia. My purpose was to search for sources of woman’s identity and to approach to the moment when a girl becomes a woman. There is something ambiguous and perturbing in this transition. The culture pictures childhood as a land of happiness: sweet and innocent. Also, our memory tends to wipe any flaws out of this image. Shooting Julia I wanted to look at the process of growing up in a more complex way. It is not a reportage, a diary or family album, but an attempt to capture the universality of this time. It is also a photographic reinterpretation of the psychological process of transfer – the photographic image is the result of Julia’s experience and my own childhood memories.

The tittle of the project is a reference to „Madonna wannabe“ phenomenon. Girls who listen to Madonna’s music are dressing and doing make-up to look exactly like she does. With these external attributes they try to discover the essence of being Madonna, the essence of femininity she embodies. Paradoxically, it helps them to express themselves.
