In the light of trees, in the colour of corals...

Trees – corals. So colouristically exotic in the Polish landscape, and yet of familiar, almost Mazovian shapes… Phenomenal pseudo-willows, artefact-like organisms glaring with internal energy. A colourful colony of luminous quasi-botanical specimens.

Come Melancholia, Come!

A crowd of faces, conversations and wine tasting. The atmosphere of von Trier’s movies. Instead of a conventional reportage from the vernissage, the photographer Ewa Pfanhauser presents us with a series of intriguing and atmospheric photographs.

She converts vernissage poses and situations. There is some oddity, expectations, suspense, something of the atmosphere of an Apocalypse. Charlotte Rampling could propose a toast: ‘Have fun! While you can!’

The mystery of the series partially stems from the iPhone’s Hipstamatic application. How can you filter luxury to make it look more decadent and even more luxurious? How can you turn a crowd of ordinary people into a swarm of exotic insects? The thrill of destruction, the power of creation. The photographer can feel it and the iPhone is merely a tool.

You may also watch footage by Szczepan Ociepa shot during the vernissage. It’s his studio that produces wonderful short films on our painters.
