Anna Orłowska

Anna Orłowska experiments with the processuality of photography, where her works are under constant transformation, with no opportunity for turning back to previous material stage. No simple narrations can be applied, as there is no access to past story. Only fragmentized elements are available in search for clarification, gaps cannot be filled, loss needs to be accepted. Here the tension between visible/available and invisible/lost occurs. The meaning can be rediscovered at each stage of the material transition. Orłowska brings back forgotten stories or even reveals these erased from the official historical narration. Demolished, forgotten, absent – objects can be excluded from the evidence, but can’t be erased from memory. We discover fading traces of the nuanced past of Silesia, artist’s region of origin.
