Jakub Wittchen’s exhibition is a walk with a performer through his/her hometown, a coffee break, visit at his/her place, a long planned appointment, a talk, making friends, shake of hands. The set for each photo has been chosen by artist him/herself. It shows artists off the stage, in places they usually like to be, places that describe them more or less… Stage photos, being a kind of visit card of each performer, have been done through last 5 years. In this time Jakub was following dance events mostly in Poznan, but also in other Polish places.
Working on the series I discover again and again how open and nice are dance artists I picture. I would even say that dance people are the most positive group of people I have ever met. The photos are a first showing of a bigger cycle that is under ongoing construction – it’s a kind of a document that, let’s hope, will grow with every year. / Jakub Wittchen
