PAWEL BOWNIK »DISASSEMBLY« – selected by THOMAS SAUVIN

»For his DISASSEMBLY series, Bownik finds new uses for the classic motifs of flowers and plants by disassembling them and seperating the stems, stalks, flowers, leaves and buds, and then reassembling them using household tools. In his conversation with Jakub Swirez, Bownik describes his work as ‘An attempt to present plants, a classic motif in art, in a new form, one which accords with what I perceive in the present age.’ Indeed, through this process, nature herself become subject to experimentation, wisely evoking beauty, plastic surgery, death and resurrection. By combining Bownik’s hyper-realistic photos with strangely annotated botanical studies, DISASSEMBLY creates an unexpected, intense and meaningful visual experience.«
