Weronika Gesicka

Discover more on this artist

The artistic universe of the young Polish artist Weronika Gesicka is based on research and strategies exploring mechanisms relating to memory and family representations from past eras. Her photography from the archive – a widespread trend among young artists – revisits and deconstructs the various historical sources by introducing derision and monstrosity into the original “good” images. Her visual distortions caustically denounce the quirky popular, propagandist and promotional purposes of these photographs.
