Zbigniew Libera
First Day of Freedom

2012, archival
inkjet print on cotton paper, dibond, 135 x 250 cm, ed. of 3 + 2 A.P.

Libera measures up to the nightmarish visions of the future by illustrating fantasies, dreams and fears that arise in our considerations of what the future has to hold. The protagonists of the First Day of Freedom – whether they are Rastafarians, Orthodox Jews, police officers or wealthy European whites – drop off the roles ascribed to them by history and return to the initial relations and emotions particular to tribal communities.
