Reviewing the analogue roots of photography is extremely important in the context of contemporary photographic practices. The exhibition Emulsion emerges from the need of revisiting the issues concerned with the materiality of photography and the related formal explorations. The project comprises works by three acclaimed artists who work in photography, but also engage with other media: Dorota Buczkowska, Nicolas Grospierre, and Robert Kuśmirowski. They will show brand new works, prepared especially for the Foundation's gallery space, which reference the origins of photography and deal with such notions as photosensitivity and conservation of photographic material. Coinciding with the opening night of the exhibition will be launch of the book under the same title. The book will feature archival photographs next to works by artists reflecting on the photographic matter as well as exploiting the potential latent in damaged photographs.
