‘Cause I see you
I’ll be your mirror
The exhibition presents the latest works made by artists associated with the Faculty of Photography at the University of the Arts in Poznań — an environment bringing together a wide range of creative attitudes and approaches. Regardless of the variety of artistic views, the authors are enthusiasts of photography and the richness of new media stemming from it, which is the main means of communication and expression for them. Each work in this exhibition has a potential for artistic reflection on a photographic representation.
Photography has long ceased to be what it is commonly believed to be — it has become a highly mythologised, partly magical, practice. We believe it and do not believe it at the same time, just as if we needed such images. We accept today’s post-photographic representations in order to reject them after a while. These images are traps, simulated views and transmissions of barely possible things, tools meant for temporary mental alterness and organising meanings.
The artists have centred their creative experiences around recognising, analysing, and criticising how photography works and functions. Will they help us understand it by whispering seductively … I’ll be your image?
