Zbigniew Dlubak - "Peripheral Landscape" in Asymetria Gallery

Research in the archive of Zbigniew Dlubak has shed light on a fragment of the least known period in the artist’s practice. In the 1950s, having withdrawn himself from artistic and public life, the artist abandoned avant-garde experiments in order to turn towards documentary photography. From 1950 to 1962, Dlubak photographed desolate cityscapes and scenes from small town life, turning their ugliness and gloomy atmosphere into an artistic value.

Research on Zbigniew Dlubak’s archive begins

In October 2008 an archive of Zbigniew Dlubak was integrated: boxes with negatives, prints, manuscripts, exhibition documentation, etc. kept in Meudon, near Paris, were brought by the Foundation to the artist’s former apartment in Poland, where they joined other materials and works left behind by Dlubak. Research in the archive scheduled for November promises a great number of interesting discoveries.
