Exhibition | Tenderly – in the privacy of the instrument maker’s workshop. Dorota Piszczatowska and Piotr Piszczatowski’s photography
The exhibition presents a subjective selection of photographs taken over many years of visits to instrument makers. Entering their homes and studios, the photographers had the unique opportunity to meet artists inside their own spaces, usually inaccessible to outsiders. The meetings were very cordial.
The photographs take us not only inside the instrument makers’ studios but also let us witness the process of creating the pieces. Its simplicity but at the same time complexity, its personal and subtle character reflected in the eyes of the artists, marked on their faces and hands. It brought about endless tales or a meaningful silence.
The spaces were filled with many hours of painstaking, focused, and painstaking work marked by layers of dust, shavings and cuttings that settles on tools and raw materials waiting for their turn, on nearly finished pieces and on paintings and photographs – personal icons.
Beyond all this, emerged happy, tender eyes that have seen the miracle happen, that have experienced the joy of creation.
