The exhibition features 44 black-and-white and colour photographs as well as 50 reproductions of daguerreotypes, hand-painted portraits, based on photographs taken during weddings, first communions and military ceremonies by the artist, Ewa Martyniszyn. The exhibited works juxtapose idealised images of people portrayed in the photographs with the stark reality of human existence. The artist achieves this by creating reproductions of the traditional 'monidła', then photographing people holding them. Ewa Martyniszyn attempts to protect the memory of individual human experience from oblivion and to rescue the ‘monidła’ portraits from destruction.
