Touch the silence, Grzegorz Przyborek

Grzegorz Przyborek is one of the leading figures in contemporary Polish photography. For more than forty years he has been building up a singular body of work, entirely produced in his studio on the 11th floor of a block of flats in a district of Lodz. His photographic universe is inspired by dreams, sometimes very concrete, intimate dreams that are not without a strong political dimension.

The exhibition in Marseille takes visitors on a journey through his work, from the Portraits series produced at the E.N.S.P. in Arles in 1990 to the latest compositions from 2022. It also features some forty drawings, objects and sculptures.

This exhibition has been organised with the support of the Polish Institute in Paris and the Bydgoszcz Museum.

Polyptyque, contemporary photography fair

La Rentrée de l'art contemporain 2024 brings together over a hundred French and international galleries, dozens of art centres and artists' collectives, and thousands of professionals.

At the heart of this artistic effervescence, since 2018 Polyptyque has offered a special place to photography, and this year is presenting some thirty solo shows by artists: those presented by the galleries and the selection for the Polyptyque prizes.
