Renata Buziak

reveal

20 September – 21 October 2017

Renata Buziak’s exhibition reveal presents a dramatic new series of self-portrait photograms that capture the artist’s performative physical presence. Departing from and yet showing parallels with her previous photographic work, reveal marks an exciting new direction in this artist’s career.

“The photograms in this exhibition were created during multiple versions of a solitary performance, born of days alone in the dark room. The images exhibit a painterly use of photography, using light, albeit with the rapid-fire aesthetic of the photogram medium.” – Louise Martin-Chew, catalogue essay.

 

Silence
Darkness
I step, I reach and fall
I touch, I turn and roll
Light, dark, light, dark, light, dark
Reveal and trace
As I struggle to twist and press
Confined
Just to gently release with a lift and a stretch
Free the movement, unlock energy
Transcend gesture
Embrace the rhythm and colour
Of my heart beat
