Description

Anna Orłowska is an artist and photographer. She studied photography at the National Film, Television and Theatr School in Łódź and at the Institute of Creative Photography at the Silesian University in Opava. In 2013, she was awarded the Photo Global scholarship at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

Orłowska creates photographic objects while testing the limits of the medium. She mainly photographs architecture and interiors, revealing the invisible layers of history and its ideological determinants, usually absent from the official narrative. She plays with various conventions, from documentation to creation, uncovering hidden myths, legends and fantasies about the past and creating new constellations of meanings. Her objects, based on photographic images, establish a dialogue with this imperfect medium. Orłowska treats them as a research instrument for exploring inherently fragmentary issues: the notion of knowledge and the work of memory. She lives and works in Warsaw.
