Studio: dolls and boxes

Dolls were most often used as protagonists of Piasecki’s theatrical studio arrangements. Their bodies were often deconstructed and then put in boxes or framed: either a symbol of oppression or protection from the outside world. Margaret Iversen states the artist’s whole body of work exhibits the „aesthetic of containment”: she argues that Piasecki’s boxes within boxes, the emphasis on framing shown in his documentary photography, the collection of found objects, as well as boxed assemblages, all signify his need to preserve „what is in danger”.
