Kasia as a Brodway actress
Eleven years ago I took photos of my high-school classmates for a tableau which is still hanging on the wall in our school in Częstochowa). This year I decided to repeat this session, but with a slight change when it comes about the function of the portrait. The idea is to replace “reality” with “virtuality” (potentiality). The portraits should not reflect the facts (us, and our history) but show some possibilities that are significant for us and yet never actualized. (the idea of this project came to my mind as I saw the www.nasza-klasa.pl portal and witness the euphoria which accompanied this internet phenomenon. In this internet-site you may log in either as a real person or as a fictional character… )
In my project everyone can be everyone: a rock star, a prominent biologist, a collector of the Winnie The Pooh` series, bat-man, a mother of ten kids, a clochard, a writher, a poet or even an alien from another planet…(everything depends on the force of imagination of my former classmates ;-)
The Project will take form of photo- and sound art installation (each participant will construct a micro-history of his character that is to be recorded during the photo-session).
Still in process...
This project is being realized due to the Mayor’s of Częstochowa City Artistic Scholarship
