Untitled

Edition 2021
4' - 2016
Director: Joanna Piotrowska
The visual vocabulary of Joanna Piotrowska’s films Untitled builds a sort of nonverbal bodily alphabet; poses of aggression and shield collapse onto each other, blurring subjective gestures of struggle into wider narratives of conflict.

Addressing issues such as the female condition, the nuclear family, or post-Soviet Poland, Piotrowska’s work investigates the symbolic and invisible power structures that constrain personal behaviors, singling how culture, politics, and history impact the very intimate, emotional life of each person. The body is an essential tool in the attempt to make these systems visible, acting like an emancipatory interface that decodes and mediates the different forces exerting their pull on the individual. (João Laia)
