Futeral

Anna Orłowska
published by Wschód, Warsaw and Film School, Łódź. 2018

Anna Orłowska embarks on a disjointed search for architectural figures through the photographic medium, displaying a strong and substantial ability to organize and arrange her findings. She uses architectural structures to perform detached analyses of the spaces she studies. Orłowska formulates her narratives around the resonance that emerges between the space and its functionality, restoring the dynamism, complexity, and distortions that have been inscribed into its history. Futerał brings into focus the convoluted histories of several Polish castles and palaces: their transformations, architecture, intended purpose and actual uses.
