Symmetriads - Repetition

The exhibition of works by Krzysztof Vorbrodt (1929-2001) entitled "Symmetriads – Repetition", co-organized by the Foundation Archeology of Photography, will open on Thursday, 27th of May, 7.00 p.m., at Asymetria Gallery. Symmetriads – Repetition is the first individual presentation of Krzysztof Vorbrodt’s works in Warsaw. Had it not been mentionned in the Anthology of Polish Photography by Jerzy Lewczynski, Vorbrodt would have remained a completely obscure artist. The output of this photographer, associated with the circle of Photographers’ Association in Gliwice, was discovered and preserved because the effort and help of Jerzy Lewczynski. The point of departure for the Symmtriads was commonplace photography, color or black-and-white, such as shots of trees or flowers. Individual frames were multiplied and combined by the author, forming mirror compositions of four images. This led to ornamental combinations lines and shapes, at times also modified by the application of color or use of color developing agents. The exhibition at Asymetria Gallery features various experiments highlighting different stages of the artist’s work, among them exceptional solarizations and hand-colored prints. The opening will be accompanied by the screening of experimental abstract films by Vorbrodt shot on 8mm stock.
