JOANNA PIOTROWSKA Sleeping Throat, Bitter Thirst
Kestner Gesellschaft, Hanover, Germany
25 Jun - 25 Sep 2022
Joanna Piotrowska's photographic practice is concerned with family structures and their relationship to larger systems - including politics, economics, social and cultural life.
She explores the past and the present, showing all the inequalities of power and psychological drama, translating gestures and everyday, intimate behaviors into new scenarios - giving them an almost cartoonish quality. Piotrowska uses her surroundings to show the anxiety and psychological tension of the domestic space, more as a document of a performance than a documentary image.
