Plan is one of the most significant contemporary art projects to emerge from Poland. Over the course of two years, Aneta Grzeszykowska and Jan Smaga created a series of ten highly unusual photographic prints: each piece documents the entirety of an apartment, including its occupants, from a normally unavailable perspective – from above. Hundreds of individual photographs are processed and merged using computers to produce the finished piece. In his essay on Grzeszykowska and Smaga’s work, Marek Krajewski marvels at the “perfection, continuity, and completeness of representation – unimaginable in traditional photography.”
In conjunction with this exhibition, which is co-presented with the Polish Cultural Institute, a presentation by the artists entitled Plan: Art & Anthropology Merge followed by a reception will take place at CEC ArtsLink on Wednesday, March 9, from 5:30-7:30pm.
