TRUE AND CLEAR PHOTOGRAPHY

Wystawa prezen­tuje fotografie dwójki pra­skich artystów – Lukáša Jasanský i Mar­tina Poláka – którzy od 1985 roku wspólnie testują konwencjonalność medium fotograficz­nego. Ich prace czerpią zarówno z tradycji sztuki kon­cep­tual­nej jak i klasycz­nej fotografii studyj­nej, krajobrazowej czy ulicz­nej, nie­zmien­nie przy tym uwodząc sub­tel­nym poczuciem humoru. Ludzie podglądani na ulicy i staran­nie kom­ponowane, choć bardzo codzienne martwe natury – zwyczajność staje się tu przed­miotem wysmakowanej gry. Prowadzi ona do zaskakujących, estetycz­nych przygód, ale i bar­dziej general­nej reflek­sji na temat istoty fotografii, jej relacji do rzeczywistości, funk­cji dokumen­tal­nej i kreacyjnej.

SOCIETY IS MEAN

This exhibition takes place in a coun­try whose society has a rather poor opinion of itself. The society is mean, the society is aging, and the force which is driving us toward all this is the progres­sive stabilization, which seems to have effec­tively conquered us after years of figh­ting on various fronts. Life in Poland has become ter­rifyin­gly ordinary. The works making up the Society Is Mean exhibition are not essen­tially asocial, but they do bril­lian­tly render the distance between the individual and the society around him or her. The artists whose works we are presen­ting give us a wholesale revision of this con­sen­sus; the sphere of their con­fron­tation with society is its lan­guage, its living space, and its dominant, stereo­typical inter­per­sonal relationships.

Za naszą i waszą wolność

This famous quote, used during the Novem­ber Uprising (1831) in Poland and traditionally attributed to Joachim Lelewel, func­tioned both in Polish and Rus­sian to under­line that the Polish uprising was direc­ted against the tsarat authority and not the Rus­sian people.
