Warsaw, May 2013
Series of photographs – 6 prints, colour print on adhesive photo paper, about 45x150cm
Fragment Bramy is a dissection of the depths of the Praga district using a motif recurrent in local architecture – the entrance porch.
These entrances – intermediary elements between the public and private spheres – are areas rich in history which give structure and bear witness to a reality of the city. The role they play in a destroyed city such as Warsaw makes them all the more captivating.
Also a physical barrier, the wall is a restraining tool which divides spaces and people. I decided to photograph these walls by reconstructing them or dividing them up in order to gain a better understanding and a sense of ownership of the area.
