The Skinny is the key cultural publication in Scotland. Their latest May issue contains a review of 'Ambit' exhibition that 'Lethe' is part of in Glasgow and there is a bit there about my project too: 'For Kowalczyk an uncanny sense of depth and flatness recurs through her series of collages of scaled up details of carefully layered torn photographic prints. Taking away easy familiarities, Kowalczyk heightens the strangeness of the unknown photographic subject to make an alluring intrigue across her presentation.' [Adam Benmakhlouf]
Until 18th of June 2017 I have a pleasure of showing my paper collages from 'Lethe' series for the very first time to the audience in Scotland. The images are part of the exhibition at Streetlevel Photoworks in Glasgow during their 'Ambit, Photographies from Scotland' show, with 4 other artists: Tine Bek, Margaret Mitchell, Donnie MacLean and Blazej Marczak. The exhibition is accompanied by a series of artist talks on 13th of May 2017.
