Echoes Shades

@ Zbierski, Piotr



Presentation by André Frère:

" In many beliefs there is an alternate world that exists between what we are taught is real and what lies beyond. Piotr Zbierski seeks to explore pathways between these two realities by crafting an impressionistic visual record of humanity.

He has travelled extensively, focusing on a number of different communities, photographing and paying homage to their unique ceremonies and daily rituals. For many of the tribes, these traditions act as a bridge between material reality and a spiritual understanding of the wider world. In his practice Zbierski considers how different cultures express and communicate their ancient ancestral connections to nature and this experience of an in-between world.

« Echoes Shades is the photographic analysis of the relationship and coexistence of nature and culture. In my work I understand culture as an echo of nature, while its symbols, signs, products and rituals as shades of elements and phenomena that occur in nature. The relations of strenght that marks (Nature) and marked space (Culture) are for me the foundation and the main starting point for analyzing the present. (...)

It is an essay about human who is derived from nature, about his passions, desires, ways of communicating and dealing with strong emotions. » "
