ShowOFF Section 2014



Hundreds of photos, more than a hundred videos, and dozens of projects with ideas that go beyond the traditional categories of media and exhibition. On February 15th the jury deliberations for ShowOFF at Krakow Photomonth were held. They were an opportunity to meet different attitudes and judgments concerning both contemporary photography and art in general. During the long and stormy meeting, 8 projects were selected that will be shown during the 12th Photomonth in Krakow. We would like to thank all applicants for their submissions, and congratulate the winners:

Nicolas Grospierre – Daniel Dostálková, Lucian Bran

Gunia Nowik and Patrick Komorowski – Empty Set (composition: Paweł Błęcki, Wiktoria Bukowy, Maciej Stachowiak), Diana Lelonek and Marek Kucharski

Ewa Tatar – Przemek Branas, Irenka Kalicka

Agata Ubysz – Monika Krzynówek, Dominika Gęsicka

Hiccups are a persistent pathological syndrome occurring as a rhythmic jolt. They are usually caused by sudden overfilling. This is also a neurotic syndrome, an involuntary bodily reflex appearing unexpectedly and leaving similarly unexpectedly. The word itself is often used in Polish as a metaphor for constant returns of something or to something, short-lived repetitive durations and their sudden dissolutions. więcej

The title of Monika Krzynówek’s series is an allusion to the experimental 1966 film Chelsea Girls. At first glance, the link between photographs of budgerigars and Andy Warhol’s stories from the daily lives of women living in the Hotel Chelsea in New York seems to be a distant one. The only element that directly refers to the pop art narrative is the pastel backgrounds that run through the series of passport photos. więcej

Eschewing technical photography and instead using the simplest traditional automatic camera, Irenka Kalicka reduces the moment of artistic decision to pressing the shutter release, and then to selecting the materials she has produced. Her photos, always very courageous, are a little brut, a little repellent, but also a little poetic and delicate. Kalicka spends a long time on each series of photos, weaving into the results of the creative process her own personal life and friends, making adjustments to the series under the influence of things she has read and visual inspirations.  więcej

José and Antonio mend meat-chopping boards (in Spanish pilón) in a small workshop in Barcelona. After hours the workshop, kitted out with a bed, video camera and mirror, is transformed into the site of trysts with local prostitutes. więcej

In Lucian Bran’s hometown, every day the inhabitants come to the forest springs which surround the city to draw water from them. These springs, baptised with the poetic names of “Honterus” or “Malin” (and the habit of drawing water from them) were photographed by Lucian Bran. więcej

There are places which, even before departure, conjure up ideas of the spaces we will be facing. Although Australia is no longer the Terra Australis Incognita of the past, Diana Lelonek and Marek Kucharski arrived at the country’s border in a similar spirit to the explorers of centuries past.  więcej

For Empty Set, nature is a privileged meeting place, a raw material and a model of joint actions. In the eyes of the viewer the photographs of desolate spaces – taken just before a storm during a mountain expedition – become the sites of an event that is yet to take place, and whose harbingers are there to be interpreted. więcej
