(Polski) Polecamy odcinek podcastu Audycje Kulturalne z Łukaszem Gorczycą na temat fotografii Zofii Rydet i jej aktualnej wystawy w galerii Raster zatytułowanej “Nieskończoność Dalekich Dróg”.
Zofia Rydet (1911–1997), creator of the iconic Sociological Record and the fantastic World of Feelings and Imagination, was an artist gifted with a sense for observing the entropy of the world around her. This exceptional photographic perspective is revealed in all its power in the series Endlessly Distant Roads, executed in 1980. In the exhibition at Raster, we present a selection of 40 photographs from this unusual and rarely shown collection.
The new exhibition is devoted to the grey areas of the imagination—religious fervour and visions arising from an excess of metaphysical stimuli or, on the contrary, from a scarcity of such stimuli and a longing for spirituality in a world dominated by the economics of everyday pragmatism.
Zofia Rydet’s photomontages from the World of Feelings and Imagination series are presented at the most important Asian biennial in Gwangju, Korea.
