Conversation around Paweł Pierściński Archive
Start: 17.12.2020, 6 PM on YouTube of ZODIAK Warszawski Pawilon Architektury
Online transmission: https://youtu.be/L57IfXSOV2s
During the meeting, we will talk about the Paweł Pierściński Archive, available at www.pawelpierscinski.pl. We will consider working on the artist’s archive, discovered photographs and surprising threads that broaden the existing knowledge about his creative activity. We encourage you to ask questions and participate in the discussion.
Paweł Pierściński’s Archive features 2500 of his photographs digitised from negatives and slides. The main body of the Archive covers one of the most universal topics of interest to the photographer: the architecture of a changing Poland from the 1950s to the first decade of the 21st century. The second group of pictures from the Archive sketches a portrait of the artist and presents some of his series, providing insight into the range of approached he took – from artistic experimentation, landscape photographs propagating the ideas of the Kielce School of Landscape, to photographs documenting the industrialisation and urbanisation of Poland.
