Katharina Marszewski at Exile / Berlin

Katharina Marszewski / Unnecessary Warsaw Correspondent

Kurf├╝rstenstrasse 19
D – 10785 Berlin

EXILE is pleased to participate in this year’s European Month of Photography with a solo exhibition by artist Katharina Marszewski entitled Unnecessary Warsaw Correspondent.
The exhibition reveals an array of visual material and sources of non-linear events assembled during the last 15 years. Marszewski’s small-format photographs, previously glued into notebooks, depict fa├žades, gazes, acts, lines of text and locations for possible scenarios. On the streets of her native city of Warsaw, the artist found the material for a language that she didn’t want to forget.
One can see a longing for expression – or perhaps for another identity? ‘The city I couldn’t live in became my muse.’ Her self-imposed role as fictional correspondent reads like an unusual report, rich in associations. At the same time, Marszewski breaks with conformist expectations for a uniform narrative and uses her photographs to visualize other planes of reality in collages and arrangements.
