Magdalena Świtek

Borderlines (2011-2015)

In the eyes of Polish-born Magdalena Åšwitek the earth is an unbelievable laboratory, which we as individuals spend a mere fraction of a second in. Everything that we experience, create and are witness to in life forms part of us, says Magdalena Åšwitek. In her long-running series BORDERLINES, she gathers her personal gaze on the world, in which her eyes patrol the border of consciousness and disbelief, like a guard. The purpose of this borderline is to be able to distinguish and capture the moment between dream and reality, dirt and purity. Each photograph tells of the continuity of the body, the fragmentation of time and the apparent unpredictability of our existence.
