The pains of being pure at heart

Mariusz Kiepura

2018 - 2019

Lisbon, Portugal; Poland; Portugal

Living the awaited present with a pensive companion of the past. The feeling of leaving motherland, dislocation between home and away, facing dreams and sobering adult life.

In this assumption, I exhibit dynamic range of moods and movements, naturally carved set-ups of nature and urban life, discretion of temporary and constant reality.

Enigmatic and often haunting narratives mixed with spirit freeing innocence of Portuguese land is my personal response to experiencing this transition. Shaped by a brutal consciousness of growing up around late soviet urban space and society, chasing for values that are believed to be too abstract to be worth it. The series comprises photographs collected in Poland, Lisbon and nearby areas over the past year.
