The Ravestijn Gallery presents two series by Polish photographer Bownik, ‘Disassembly’ and ‘Reverse’. Both series testify to Bownik’s continuous awareness of photography’s mediality, of the intricate layers of ethical and aesthetic considerations brought forth by his subjects, and an ability to combine philosophical questions with highly evocative and intriguing images.
Bownik (1977) lives and works in Warsaw, Poland. He studied philosophy and sociology in Lublin and received his degree in photography and multimedia from the Pozna? Academy of Fine Arts. His work has been exhibited mostly in Poland such as ‘As you can see Polish Art Today’, Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw (Poland 2014), ‘Houses As Silver Tents’, Wroclaw Contemporary Museum, Wroclaw (Poland 2014), ‘A Few Practical Ways To Prolong One’s Life’, Zach?ta National Art Gallery, Warsaw (Poland).
