EUROPEAN MONTH OF PHOTOGRAPHY BERLIN: FOREST ON A COMET
Magdalena Andrynowska, Katarzyna Wasowska
Forest on a Comet brings together two artists and two attitudes toward the notion of space, home and mobility. Trees and a comet – mapping the space with photographs in different forms and contexts.
Comet represents dynamics and movement, but also a threat of destabilization, the unknown, distant, intangible. For Katarzyna Wasowska home is a feeling, a relation, a phenomenon that we carry with us during our constant migrations. Journey has always been a key notion in Wasowska’s works. Mobility is in her genes; the men in her family have always been sailors. Forest, or rather trees, in contrast, represent stabilization, comfort, safety: a place. Trees experience time and space in a unique way. Magdalena Andrynowska analyzes, organizes and re-organizes the space nearest to her and focuses on trees as bearers of past and future, unique links with nature and culture.
Formally the exhibition will be a dialogue between traditional large-format photographs, photographs forming narratives in books, experiments with organic images made of tree extracts, mental and graphic maps, projections and installations.
