“Suffocation” finds itself between fiction, reality, and a dream. It’s a form of dealing with personal and social trauma. Marina Istomina tells a story about Siberian wildfires, which is formed into multi-layered puzzles, confronting the archival photographs with works of the artist. How deeply detrimental can a political game be when it comes to destroying the landscape? How far-reaching are the social and psychological consequences? We will confront all of these visual experiences this May during Krakow Photomonth.
