LAZNIA 1 2005 - Katarzyna Górna HAPPY BIRTHDAY
Curator: Ryszard Ziarkiewicz

The exhibition consisted of the photographic series: Marilyn, Playing with a Thread and Pink and DVD films – Happy Birthday and Barbiebar. The characteristic feature of the works were the stereotypes, irrespective of the work’s topic, like stylistic or iconographic ones, and the interest in breaking social conventions of the perception of both sexes, and not only female. In this point Górna approaches the political sphere, which decides about the distribution of social roles and ascribing to each of them separate cultural qualities, that is, it finally decides about the valid image of identity.
