WERONIKA WOZNIAK – MATRILINEAL
29. 6. – 13. 8. 2022
The photographic project of the young Polish artist Weronika Wozniak called Matrilineal is an attempt to understand the experiences of generations of women whose individual lives become invisible. Women’s lives in many families flow linearly: childhood, youth, marriage, child and family. Each generation follows the same program. It’s almost as if the matryoshka has opened to reveal her copies.
In her project, Weronika creates a parallel world in which she accepts designated roles while maintaining her own identity. She uses images from family and her own photographic archives to incarnate both the mother and the child.
Weronika Wozniak (* 1987) comes from Poland and studied Film and New Media at the University of Łódzi and photography at the ITF in Opava. She has participated in group exhibitions in the Czech Republic, Poland, Austria and France. www.weronikawozniak.pl
