Solo Exhibition



Maria Sewcz

Every city develops its own profile, has its own pulse, which is decisively regulated by both historical and actual power relations. Starting from this premise, Maria Sewcz has created photographic cycles on large cities, including Istanbul (2016–17), Rome (2011–12), Berlin (2013–16), and London (2018 – on-going).

Sewcz’s pieces on cities form the core of her œuvre; they are self-contained, independent groups of works. For Sewcz, large cities are centrifuges of acceleration in modernity and symbolise the great themes of our time.

This exhibition will also feature early work from the years 1979 to 1985, including the cities of Gdansk, Prague, and Leningrad (St Petersburg). The body of work “TR 34; ISTANBUL” will be shown in a room installation. It was created in the period between the attempted coup in Turkey in July 2016 and the constitutional referendum in April 2017.
