Redefining the Visual Image

Article's tools:

The Ujazdowski Castle Center for Contemporary Art in Warsaw is staging the first exhibition in Poland of work by California-based American artist Sharon Lockhart.

Born in 1964, Lockhart, is regarded as one of the best contemporary photographers and experimental filmmakers. In her work, Lockhart aims to redefine the visual image and its ontological status. Lockhart’s films, frequently shown at international festivals, have a portrait-like quality, exploring the psychology of the depicted characters in depth.

Lockhart has had her work exhibited by leading contemporary art institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York and the Kunsthalle in Zurich, Switzerland.

In her films and photographic projects, Lockhart likes to experiment with different narratives ranging from the minimalistic Teatro amazonas to the post-avant-garde Pine flat to the monumental Noa eskhol. The latter is a tribute to an outstanding Israeli female choreographer.

Warsaw audiences will also see Podwórka (Backyards) from 2009, a one-hour film Lockhart shot in the Polish city of ŁódĽ. Podwórka consists of poetic sequences with children filmed while playing in the abandoned backyards of townhouses in ŁódĽ which used to be inhabited by Jews.

May 17-Aug. 18
Ujazdowski Castle Center for Contemporary Art; 2 Jazdów St.
