Collections of Interferences from the Hardangerfjord
Ewa Doroszenko’s prints are sparse, pared down, and confined to a black, white and grey monochromatism. The images in this particular series draw on the affective and irrational side of our perception, fossilizing in memory the place of their creation: an intersection between Ewa’s own mind and the physical location of her artistic residency. As a starting point, her collages trace back to photographic material from lifestyle magazines, painting albums and atlases. From here, digital graphics illustrate the flow of visual material: collecting, archiving, reproduction in the context of modern times. The title of the digital collages direct our attention to the interplay between the real and the imaginary: The “Collections of interferences from the Hardangerfjord”
These digital collages printed on archival paper were prepared during a month-long artist-in-residency at Kunstnarhuset Messen, Ålvik, Norway, 2015.
