Clic Gallery | MAGDA BIERNAT | Continental Bounce
CLIC GALLERY presents an exhibition
BY MAGDA BIERNAT
February 2 - March 2, 2010
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 4th, 6-9 pm
MAGDA BIERNAT's graceful, color-saturated photographs of architectural structures recently won her first place in the Architecture/Interiors category at the 2009 International Photography Awards. CONTINENTAL BOUNCE showcases the photographs taken during the year she spent traveling the world, photographing the built environment and living spaces in 17 countries. Her vibrant, minutely detailed shots are deliberately void of any known geographic or cultural identifiers, and the viewer is left to search out any possible clues of location as they look at an arid South African township, a futuristic Taiwanese diving resort, or the interior of a yurt in Mongolia. Biernat's photogaphs of uninhabited rooms and homes express a sense of the disorienting universality of human spaces. The compositions are quiet and pristine, but despite the emptiness of the scenes, there is a warmth and richness to the images, and a respectful fascination with the unexamined landmarks and objects of everyday life.
A native of Poland currently based in New York, MAGDA BIERNAT has exhibited in Europe and the United States since 2001. Her photographs have appeared in Metropolis Magazine, Afar Magazine, and ELLE Décor. CONTINENTAL BOUNCE is her solo debut at a New York gallery.
