Dawid Radziszewski

Joanna Piotrowska

Born in 1985, studied Photography at the Royal College of Art in London and Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków. Her photographic practice focuses on familial structures and their relationship to the wider systems—including politics, economics, social, and cultural life. She explores the past and the present, showing all the inequalities of power and psychological drama, and translating the gestures and everyday intimate behaviors into new scenarios – giving them an almost caricature-like quality. Piotrowska uses her surroundings to show the anxiety and psychological tension of the domestic space, rather as a document of a performance than a documentary image. She lives and works between London and Warsaw.
