Works by Katarzyna Bielec are photographies of modern architecture. However, it is not illustrative photography – they are intelligently spotted, selected, cropped sections: construction lines, nonobvious and yet existent; creating tensions, directions, energy – character of those original buildings. The content of the topic embarked on gets lost in the frame, which is dominated by the form i.e. composition, graphics, reflexes, multiplications of the particular structural elements like glass surfaces of facades, steel bearers and construction elements. Structural forms pendant in the space seem to contradict the gravity laws – by losing their functionality they become visually immaterial – adds the author. Architecture pictured in such a way, from a baffling perspective, in a surprising frame, becomes a spacial illusion as well as a pure abstraction.
