poster for Paweł Wojtasik "Nine Gates"

This event has ended.

Nine Gates, a new exhibition by Paweł Wojtasik at Priska C. Juschka Fine Art, is an exploration of the possibility of transcendence through sexual passion. The exhibition consists of a 20 minute long high definition video and nine duratrans prints in lightboxes and is inspired by a poem by Guillaume Apollinaire Nine Gates of Your Body, which he wrote while fighting in World War I. Presenting close-up images of the orifices of the body, Wojtasik's work toes the line between anatomy and pornography. However, unlike pornography or anatomy, Nine Gates, through its sensuous camera work and careful composition, concerns itself with the question of beauty. Examining the operation of desire in the act of looking, Nine Gates engages profound questions of the nature of love and visuality.
