Igor Omulecki: "Family Triptych" 2007-2012 | Portfolio

"The Family Triptych, which Igor Omulecki has created over the last five  years.  The triptych has been directly informed by the artists private life, at a time when he and his wife are expecting their first child. The symbiotic relationship between life and work the growing up of ones kids, ones relationships with ones spouse, parents is constantly present in the triad, and one should actually say that it is its bilateral character that inspired the work in the first place. However, the Triptych is not a chronicle of the vivisection of a familys everyday life. Despite using photography whose exhibitionist potential is well known this is not a story about privacy and access to it. The possibility disappears from our sight very quickly."
