Andrzej Kramarz: “A Piece of Land”
Stefania Gurdowa: “Negatives Are To Be Stored”
Andrzej Kramarz from Krakow, Poland, will exhibit work that conceptually focuses on bringing a contemporary awareness to scenes marked by the memory of World War ll. His large-scale photographs and video are accompanied by taped interviews of witnesses from these places, who bring the stories and history back through the images.
Concurrently in the gallery will be an exhibition curated by Kramarz, featuring the work of photographer Stefania Gurdowa. These photographs were printed from a collection of glass photo plates found in the attic of her house in Debica, Poland, taken by her between 1921- 1937. These haunting images enable us to ponder the mystery of these portraits and her life as a woman photographer.
