[gone] Project: POLAND
The [gone] Project was born in 2014 and brings together a range of photographic projects that respond to the in situ experience of Anastasia Fugger and Carolina Pimenta. The two photographers travel the world capturing a unique perspective of seemingly known grounds thereby creating a distinct way of exploring a location through a unique collaboration of two lenses.
[gone] Project: MEXICO was the first series, in their second series [gone] POLAND, Fugger and Pimenta embarked on a four week road-trip through Poland in Spring 2016. By tackling subjects such as society, politics and spirituality the two photographers pushed their practice into a visual exploration that intends to promote discussion or mere reflection on Poland's cultural characteristics in a multitude of contexts.
The tones and colours used by the artists are reminiscent of those they found throughout their journey in Polish cities and peripheries. Sized, framed and selected with the utmost attention to detail, the photographic series presented by Fugger and Pimenta is a celebration of their experience of a country still coming to terms with its identity, many times disrupted by changing borders and wartime.
