ジョアンナ・ピオトロフスカ Joanna PIOTROWSKA


Born 1985 in Warsaw, Poland. Lives and works in London. Joanna Piotrowska’s photographic work focuses on the relationship between family structures and human behavior and broader systems, including social and cultural life. Her photographs of oddly entangled bodies and women performing gestures and movements from self-defense manuals transform gentle, intimate everyday gestures into new scenarios of liberation and repression. Recent solo exhibitions include “Entre Nous” (LE BAL, Paris, 2023), “Sleeping Throat, Bitter Thirst” (Kestner Gesellschaft, Hanover, Germany, 2022), and “All our False Devices” (Tate Britain, London, 2019). She held “Toride,” her first solo exhibition in Japan, at Hagiwara Projects in Tokyo in March 2023.
