Wiktoria Wojciechowska

Polish Photographer | Born: 1991
Wiktoria Wojciechowska b. 1991 in Lublin, in the green East of Poland. Graduated in faculty of Media Art on Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. In her works she uses narration based on borderline of documentary and creation.

When she was 3 mother gave her scissors to make paper cuttings. At the age of 4 she decided to become a prima ballerina but at the same time she was sculpting little animals in plasticine - now her father thinks it was the beginning of the artistic way of her life. School didn’t kill her creativity. When she was 17 she completely fell in love. She started to use photography as a tool for collecting memories - camera was always in her pocket. This addiction is still progressing...

About Own PLace:
This cycle of works is a symbolic attempt of connecting a human being with his place of living. In times when distance is no longer a barrier and when settling down and identifying with space is getting harder. Looking out through their windows, the figures are pensive and lonesome. Their bodies reflected in the window's surface and create with the surrounding space a natural synthesis of the pseudo-images and real sceneries. The apparent presence, free- style conception voluntarily putting aside our in-depth roots and the unsuccessful attempts to "dwelling" in a different area, these are the characteristics of contemporary nomadism. Despite the compulsion to constantly seek a “better” place, the need for taming the space is not willing to disappear. Images of dream houses, houses from memories, typical – as on child’s drawing they construct a visual archetype of an asylum. Pictures of people and suburban houses compile an image of longing for stability, safety and owning your own place.

About Swallow:
It is very easy for us to treat the Chinese people as a mass where you can’t specify components, particular individualities. Robots with identical faces, pursuing wealth, without a free will, blindly executing the orders of the government, disrooted from tradition and spirituality. We are comfortable with pigeonholing them in stereotypes, thus reassuring ourselves of our superiority. Starting from this position we are going East, colonising everything with western pop culture, being never really able to deeply understand even a single individual. This project is an intimate record of conversations and images from the period of time which I spent with my friend Cong Yan in China. I merge symbols and meanings, the codes from eastern and western cultures. I’m floating on associative intertexts, looping references. The project contains digital, analog and polaroid photographies, both, black & white and colour. Furthermore, it contains photos with graphic modification, archives, objects, images, gifs or short videos and texts. All in all, it contains around 100 elements.
