Art Now: Joanna Piotrowska: All Our False Devices – Exhibition at Tate Britain | Tate

(Friday) (Sunday)

Joanna Piotrowska presents an installation of carefully composed black and white photographs and 16 mm films





























Born in Poland and based in London, Piotrowska has an interest in domestic spaces and man-made environments. For one series of works she asked people in Lisbon, Rio de Janeiro, Warsaw and London to build makeshift shelters in their homes and gardens, subverting childhood play.Other works present gestures and movements from self-defence manuals, implying violence against women as well as their empowerment. Her photographs and films relate to self-protection, psychophysical relationships and the power dynamics underlying how we relate to each other.Her work was included in Being: New Photography 2018, MoMA, New York and 10th Biennale Berlin, 2018, Germany and forthcoming projects include a solo show at Kunsthalle Basel in the autumn 2019.​Art Now is a series of free exhibitions at Tate Britain focusing on work by emerging artists.Made possible with the kind assistance of Southard Reid.Art Now: Joanna Piotrowska is curated by Sofia Karamani and Zuzana Flaskova.
