DISAPPEARANCE


"Disappearance" is a mixed media exhibition based on a photobook with the same title. 

The feelings of loss and longing are the main themes at stake in the autobiographical photobook of Tomasz Laczny who questioned his own experience as being a father and the distance that has gradually settled between himself and his children after a long divorce procedure. Tomasz Laczny guides the viewer through a dreamlike world in which autobiographical and fictional elements get mixed. He creates an impresionnistic world composed of joy, sadness, humor, melancholy and pain which vividly questioned the issue of identity , between the feelings of belonging, distance and loss.
