The Belgian Business Chamber had the pleasure to invite you to a photo exhibition opening of a Belgian artist Jean - François Spricigo entitled „toujours l’aurore”, which took place on the 19th January at the Stara Galeria ZPAF, Plac Zamkowy 8 in Warsaw.
The exhibition was open from 19 Janury till 19 February 2017.
About the exhibition:
The "toujours l'aurore" series by Jean - François Spricigo which we will present at the exhibition in the ZPAF Stara Galeria (Old Gallery), will allow viewers to fully explore the characteristic features of the Belgian artist's photographs: the poetic, open-ended narrative, consisting of portraits with blurred features, but still retaining the emotional truth of portrayed animals and humans, mysterious landscapes, and few snapshots of everyday life. Special place is held by the portraits of animals, depicted up close, with emphasis on their inner emotional and mental life.
Jean - François Spricigo (born 1979 in Tournai, Belgium) is one of the best Belgian photographers of the young generation. He also dabbles in film and wrote numerous pieces of poetic prose. He has created his own, highly emotional language of photography; it is personal, features blurred images, visible grain, close-ups of the most distinctive pieces, expressive portrait shots, both of people and of animals, as well as wide angle shots of landscapes. He describes his work as a striving to express his feelings, and not to present the world.
The exhibition was created in collaboration of Flying Gallery Foundation with ZPAF Old Gallery, 104 gallery in Paris, and the Representation of Wallonia and Brussels in Poland. The partners of the exhibition are the Belgian Chamber of Commerce and XBS company. Its curators are Clotilde Simonis-Gorska and Lena Wicherkiewicz.
The "toujours l'aurore" series, which consists of 137 photographies, was produced by 104 gallery in Paris for the exhibition there in 2014.
