Dark Rooms

Dark Rooms

The project consists of series of photographs showing empty darkroom interiors, shot in the morning just after leaving them by junketeers and before cleaning them. Pustoła portrayed this space together with its peaceful and – at the same time – disturbing energy still warmed-up with activity of the company which had just left the room. The artist looked inside the matter usually covered with understatements, stereotypical cultural and visual images – though without exalted prudery and pretended courage. Dark rooms is a project where we can look into physical conditionings of reality transformation modes – and where the detail and everything that is inapparent, mysterious and darkling becomes the sole stimulant for our imagination.
