26 April - 7 May 2013: Stolen gazes - images of peoples from Peruvian Amazon and Colombia by Agata Lulkowska

A new exhibition of work by the photographer Agata Lulkowska

Stolen Gazes - Agata

Being simultaneously a researcher and a professional photographer, Agata finds her fieldwork particularly fascinating. Having many years of experience in photography, she is always searching for the aesthetic qualities when working in the field. This implies a new quality of image, which has to address and satisfy both scientific and artistic needs and requirements. Her research is practice-led, focusing on visual representations of Indigenous cultures of Colombia. The aim is to produce a collaborative work with a selected community, starting from the dialogue about the existing art works, discussing the ways to represent and question one’s identity through visual media, and finally producing the visual materials.

The exhibition ran from 23 April - 7 May 2013 in the Peltz Room at 43 Gordon Square.

This exhibition was hosted by the Centre for Iberian and Latin American Studies.
