s.w.a.l.k. - Joanna Piotrowska

19 Sep 2014–10 Jan 2015


Joanna Piotrowska presents a series of new photographs in her first UK solo exhibition. Since graduating in 2013, Piotrowska has quickly established a reputation for making compelling and psychologically wrought photographs that explore desire and intimacy. Piotrowska's black and white photographs offer semi-staged choreographies in which relationships between brothers, sisters, spouses and friends are interrogated through bodily gestures. Affection can turn to antagonism and intimacy can become enveloped within subtle power dynamics. For Piotrowska, meaning is intimated through what is not said and communication becomes a type of improvised dance.
