The Vision from the 2016 Artistic Advisor
In 2013, Marta Zgierska survived a serious car accident and several months of intense hardship (surgical procedures, physiotherapy, depression, etc.). This traumatic event completely redefined her photographic work and gave rise to “Post”. By attempting to embody her trauma through photography, Marta Zgierska uses an autobiographical approach.
She distances herself symbolically from her fears and anxieties and fixes them in a pure form, producing fragile pictures that hang on by a thread. Each photograph metaphorically evokes a part of her own story, the elliptical suggestion with clinical aesthetics.
Glacial, almost silent images, that form the conundrum of a conversation reduced to the bare essentials, the visual articulation of the minimal language of survival.
