Polish Potography on the SIPA Art Fair in Seoul
Presented by IF MUSEUM Inner Spaces Poznań/Poland
The exhibition will present photographs of four artists:

Ewa Łowżył - Poznań
Anna Orlikowska - Łoódź
Grzegorz Przyborek - Łódź
Tomasz Wendland - Poznań

Anna Orlikowska's Istota

Works of Ewa Łowżył take part in the discussion about the media and genetic manipulations. They relate to the history of human body, religious and demonic wefts, human as a machine and organism being both a part of the nature and a mechanism hiding the soul.

Her photographs idealize the body as an object of desire and beauty. They cross the borders of the natural.

Anna Orlikowska photographs the reality of modern Poland. Her works are a kind of documentary, but with an obvious personal reflection. The omnipresent, so called "Lumpex," a shop with vintage clothes from Western Europe abuts with a wholesale of China imported materials. She shows Poland on the borderline, as a country of unplanned contrasts.

Another work shows a car workshop, a place where crashed cars imported from the richer part of the Europe, an icon of wealth and never ending consumption, are renovated.

Anna Orlikowska's works are picturesque, the color and composition play a fundamental role.

The photographs of Grzegorz Przyborka are an effect of precise installations, so called "photographical installations." They are often showed as independent artworks, and the photographies uncover another poetics of the situation.

His works are extremely polish, because they often relate to Christian and European iconography, and are undoubtedly impressions from the artist's journeys to his beloved France.

The photographs of Tomasz Wedland base on the idea of symmetry and harmony, omnipresent in the European (but not only) philosophy. The observation of reality is strengthened by its mirror duplication, it draws the spectator into a virtual, often unbearable reality. The symmetry becomes an annoying cage, creating new objects on its borders. Through the duplications, in seemingly unimportant reality a mystical presence appears, allowing a intercourse with the spiritual nature of the world.

These are four elementals, in which art becomes one of the means of reaching further than human imagination, rousing a deep afterthought.
