On the 10th October in the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw took place the opening of the exhibition of the 13th edition of the Fotografia Kolekcjonerska project. It provides visitors with a rare opportunity to see unique works of Polish photographers in one place at the same time. The exhibition will end with an auction of all the exhibited items which will be held on 26 October 2014.
Each successive Fotografia Kolecjonerska edition gives viewers a rare opportunity to experience exceptional art created over a period of several decades, which provides an insight into different interpretations of the world and a range of uses of photography. In addition to such icons of Polish photography as Edward Hartwig and Tadeusz Rolke, we will also present works by successful young artists, including Karolina Breguła, Rafał Milach and Kacper Kowalski to name just a few. Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz (Witkacy) was an indisputable 'star' of our last two editions. His works are highly appreciated both by Polish and foreign collectors. Last time, his two photographs known as the Narcotic Shot and dating back to 1931 were sold for the highest price of all the lots. They went for PLN 68 000. This time too – although with much effort– we have managed to acquire a work by that much sought-after artist. The photograph featured this year will be Madman's Terror, dating back to 1931.
This year's highlights also include prints by the distinguished Polish pictorialist Tadeusz Wański, unique early works by Paweł Pierściński, and the famous Nedda by Ryszard Horowitz. The Edward Hartwig photograph, which shows his daughter Danuta, featured on the cover of his much-celebrated book Fotografika. Our special features will also include a photograph taken by Chris Niedenthal in the USSR which will appear in his upcoming book to be published in autumn this year. We will revisit the output of Ireneusz Zjeżdżałka, who died six years ago. Zofia Rydet also will be presented with works from her Little Man, World of Feelings and Imagination and Sociological Record series. Viewers may be also interested in 6 modern prints from Fortunata Obrąpalska's innovative series entitled Diffusion in Liquid, which dates back to 1948.
Traditionally, the exhibition will end with an auction, which has been added to the fringe programme of this year's Warsaw Photo Days.
