Photography exhibition « Living on the Margin » (curated by Jagna Olejnikowska)
5 - 25 October 2011, CCRN, free entry | more info
As an extension of the festival's main thematic cycle "On the margin of society," the organisers present a large photography exhibition, which brings together works of ten artists from Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary on the theme of marginality. About a hundred photographs, exhibited all around the Abbaye, capture individuals or groups living outside "mainstream society": the Roma, drug addicts, unemployed, homeless, children from problematic neighbourhoods, disabled, refugees, elderly.
Projects such as that of Jindøich treit devoted to drug addicts, that of Adam Lach on children from deprived areas or that of Marek Maliszewski on refugees illustrate the tension between exclusion and self-exclusion. In turn, the work of Matú Zajac and Tamás Zador devoted to Roma communities, or photos of people living on the margin of society in big cities by Damian Chrobak will offer perspectives on how societies perceive and sometimes marginalise these people viewed as "different".
Exhibition organised by CinEast and the Association of Polish Art Photographers (OW ZPAF) in cooperation and with support of CCRN and Fonds Culturel National.
