Bad to the Bone: Two Sides of Women
August 27, 2014
An exhibition of photographs by young Poznan-based artist Weronika Krawczuk at the Galeria 27 gallery in Warsaw is yet another voice in the debate on redefining the image of women in contemporary Poland.
The exhibition will be open to the public until Sept. 27. Its title, Bad to the Bone, is also the name of Poland’s first roller derby team, founded in the western city of Poznan last year, of which Krawczuk is a co-founder and member.
Roller derby is a contact sport played by two teams of five members roller skating in the same direction around a track.
Krawczuk’s photographs tell the story of women team members, about how they combine feminine fragility with the toughness of this contact sport. As Krawczuk herself is a member of the Bad to the Bone squad, the story she tells in her photographs seems particularly sincere and tangible.
