ASYMETRIA

Stand: B35 

The Asymetria Gallery is Poland's first gallery to focus on historic national photographic works. It presents documentary and experimental photography of the 20th century. It collaborates with the Archeology of Photography Foundation and Imago Mundi.

 

THE ANTI-PHOTOGRAPHERS: NEOREALISM IN THE POLISH PHOTOGRAPHY 50.60.

The main statement of the gallery is the link between neorealism and 1950s and 1960s Polish photography and its influence on master photographers such as Jerzy Lewczynski, Marek Piasecki, Tadeusz Rolke or Zofia Rydet. The gallery also presents the related work of young but already recognised Polish photographers: Anna Orlowska, Krzysztof Pijarski, Tomasz Szerszen and Lukasz Trzcinski. The Ukrainian photography is also exhibited, namely the work of constructivist Vasyl Yermilov (1894-1968) with his project “The Palace of Young Pioneers” in the USSR (Kharkiv, 1930), and young photographers from Kharkiv with the Shilo collective’s project (Boris Mikhailov’s students) “Finished Dissertation” (2014).
