JAKUB PASIERKIEWICZ, SHORTLISTED 3RD BIENNIAL’S GRANT
Often, we come across images which have very little in common regarding their
subject, yet which seem to be closely resembled. It is a sort of unintentional
recollection, where retained images in our memory appear in newly encountered
situations, phenomena, or objects. Some might call it Déjà vu - as an anomaly of
memory, which creates a distinct impression that an experience is "being recalled".
Subconsciously similar motifs draw one's attention. Individual elements of
compositions, or colour combinations, all bring deeply embedded memories of past
The set of photographs evolved from images collected over the years, taken in
different locations and at different times.
I would like to spend the cash grant for covering the cost of preparation for an
individual photography exhibition in Sun Pier House in Chatham, UK as I wish to
share my perception of reality with local community.
All the money would be spent on photo printing and framing required for the venue.
