Center for Contemporary Art, Projectroom
With the exhibition radiKAHLschlag, the photo artist Georgia Krawiec (*1972 in Kędzierzyn/Poland) presents pieces from her current work process in the ZAK-Projectroom. In her oeuvre, Georgia Krawiec approaches the medium of photography in an original and experimental way. With the help of analog, photoarchaic and antiapparative media and forms of expression (e.g. pinhole camera and photogram), the artist accompanies the process of creating her works, some of which takes several months, from the very beginning.
In her exhibition, the artist, who lives in Berlin, deals with the environmental behaviour of our time and questions the relationship between human beings and nature. The tree is the central topic of the exhibition display. The focus is on the paradoxical handling of the plant, which on the one hand is strongly mythologized and of high social relevance, but on the other hand is cut down without hesitation for daily use as a raw material and for the extraction of open spaces.
Through her experimental photographic works and objects, Georgia Krawiec creates an space of association with this complex and current topic in which visitors are encouraged to reflect on their own respectful and responsible way of dealing with nature and the environment.
