Joanna Pawłowska – Fixation

30,00

What is a picture when we reduce it to a minimal form, what associations does it evoke? What messages does it convey? How is the viewer reflected in the picture and how does the picture resonate in the next viewer? Can a personal experience told in concise pictures be universal, understandable, intimate? Ultimately, in FIXATION, the viewer makes sense of what he sees.

FIXATION is about observing focused on marginal places, spaces of the second category. These are seemingly dead places, out-of-sets, margins of reality that emanate meaning and life when we look at them. What is a picture when we reduce it to a minimal form, what associations does it evoke? What messages does it convey? How is the viewer reflected in the picture and how does the picture resonate in the next viewer? Can a personal experience told in concise pictures be universal, understandable, intimate? Ultimately, in FIXATION, the viewer makes sense of what he sees.

„I am looking for pictures evoking associations, ambiguous, engaging the imagination. I photograph situations and places that reflect the rupture in the world, the error, the moments when the limits of possibility are reached. I am watching the world that is watching me”
