Ewa Partum – Samoidentyfikacja [fot. Andrzej Brzeziński], 1980. Vintage print. Gelatin silver print on photographic paper. Dimensions: 12 x 18 cm.
„At her 1980 exhibition Self-identification in Warsaw’s Mała Gallery, the artist’s nude performance was accompanied by a controversial series of photomontages of her naked figure superimposed on scenes of Warsaw; Partum appeared naked among pedestrians, at a crossroads, next to a policewoman, in a store queue and in front of the presidential palace. The title Self-identification defined the work as the search for one’s feminine identity” – Ewa Gorzadek, https://culture.pl/en/artist/ewa-partum
