Facets of Art - Faces of the Street - exhibition of Katarzyna Chmura-Cegiełkowska’s
photographs documenting the spectacles of the International Street Art Festival
Facets of Art - Faces of the Streetproject is a continuation of our cooperation with the theatre photographer Katarzyna Chmura-Cegiełkowska. Dramatic art gains new quality when it leaves theatre halls. Direct interaction with the audience, especially with accidental spectators, gives it exceptional energy and many new meanings. The artist’s photographs show how the theatre that has been taken out to the street becomes a part of it, fits into the urban climate. The work of a photographer who documents a street festival is different from the task of a person preparing traditional theatre shots. The pictures of street performances cannot be sterile photos, they have to show the city and the spectators as equal participants of each spectacle. The photographs presented at the exhibition come from the 21st Street Art Festival, from 2013. Katarzyna (Kasia) Chmura has been cooperating with us since 2010.
