Story: In Humantria, made up of 8 photographs, but here I present only 5. It is presenting the human figure in the context of geometric forms, I inquire into the relations between the body and the figure, I focus on divisions, composition, geometry. The cycle is based on a minimalist scenery, which brings out the problem I undertake, basing on formal solutions, but also allowing it to influence the sphere of message and significance. One might say that these are pictograms of sorts. The symbolism is obvious. I perform here an analysis of the symbol along with the context of social roles of women and men ascribed to it. From my perspective, our times see a homogenisation, a blurring of the social male and female roles, a mimicry. Women and men swap their roles. Men bring up children and women support the household.I’m living in times of enormous technological and social changes. The increase in awareness is impossible to stop. As recently as a hundred years ago, women fought for the right to wear trousers as the more comfortable kind of clothes, giving a greater freedom of movement both literally and in the symbolic sense. A hundred years later they have shed the social corset, at the same time gaining ever more space for themselves. The masculine world is slowly giving way, yielding to delicate suggestion. And this is where the question arises of how much society is bound to benefit from this?

About the Artist:

Anna66 Andrzejewska was born in 1977 in Będzin, Poland. She is a member of Association of Polish Art Photographers and a PhD student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice at the Graphics Workshop Department, under the supervisor prof. Ewa Zawadzka. She deals with creative photography and expresses herself in terms of the widely understood portrait. An important element of her photographs is colour, but she fancies black-and-white minimalism, too, beautiful ugliness and balancing on the edge of kitsch. In the artistic field she enjoys designing the real world of an unreal structure. She is a winner of many competitions. She has had individual and collective exhibitions all over Poland and abroad. She appreciates the work of Zofia Rydet, Natalia LL., Waldemar Jama. She has got a dog and three cats.
