Writing: On the Work of Joanna Piotrowska

“Unease is often palpable in Piotrowska’s work — elbows, knees, hips and legs become unwieldy prosthesis. The focus of Piotrowska’s attention is the grammar of everyday action; hugging, grabbing,leaning and kissing — signifiers of emotion are translated into a type of caricature. Piotrowska’s photographs provide a megaphone that amplifies the silent language of the gestural. Piotrowska uses the silence of photography to find a new type of vocality.”

I wrote a text on the work of Joanna Piotrowska. You can read it HERE.
