Elzbieta Tejchman “portrayed” the body of her partner, the artist Wojciech Wawrzonowski, by juxtaposing close-ups of fragments of his naked body with their physical imprints made on photosensitive material (and later re-photographed). Analytical, yet at the same time extremely sensual, Tejchman’s works not only fall within media-oriented explorations undertaken by the avant-garde of the time, but also ‘constitute a trace of the sexual and intimate revolution that almost unconsciously left its mark on the Polish neo-avant-garde of the late 1960s and early 1970s (…)’. (from the catalogue text by Pawel Leszkowicz).
This exhibition of Elzbieta Tejchman’s works was made possible thanks to the FotoRejestr project (www.fotorejestr.net), as a part of which the Foundation was able to locate and research the first portion of the photographer’s oeuvre.
The exhibition in Asymmetry Gallery is accompanied by a limited edition catalogue, available in Polish and English, with an essay by Pawel Leszkowicz, PhD.
