The black-and-white photographs and films by Joanna Piotrowska (*1985) capture the everyday drama of human relations. The Polish artist creates inexplicably strange and touching images, whose recording of gestures of care, self-protection, or control are as deftly composed as they are psychologically charged. For her first institutional solo exhibition in Switzerland, the artist presents a new series of photographs, alongside recent photographs and films.
