Ewa Doroszenko est une artiste polonaise qui expérimente dans plusieurs domaines tels que la photographie traditionnelle, les installations multimédias et l’art sur internet. Élargissant continuellement ses sujets de recherches, elle tente dans sa série The Promise of Sublime Words de distordre l’image primaire de la sculpture par le collage.
The project I started whilst the course of doctoral studies, when I was preparing to the final exam in art history. During my research I discovered many old and obsolete books with popular sculptures from Antique to Classicism. To spice the process of spaced repetition, I began preparing photographs connected with discussed topics. I tried to confront myself with photographic reproductions of varying quality and scale, which depict stone sculptures, illusionistic spaces, portraits, etc. My aim was to show my favorite statues as objects, which arouse ambiguous associations. I tried to distort the usual view of sculptures and finally destabilize a natural sense of order. The appropriated images, deliberately trimmed to remove some details, are hard to decipher. I created new equivalences and relationships – the internal juxtapositions are far detached from the original context of images.
