TIFF Festival : RESOURCES kicks off in Wroclaw, Poland on the 7th of September

TIFF Festival: Resources / 7–17 September / Wroclaw, Poland

The 7th edition of the TIFF Festival kicks off next week in Wroclaw, Poland rendered around a broad theme of "Resources".

This time the organisers decided to draw a question mark to a thought that a lot of artists are usually placed upon - how do we operate and develop our creative self artistically, being limited to a certain amount of resources, or a lack of such, that of financial nature especially.

prism #25.12: 'Seeds From the Zoo' by Bryony Dunne

Seeds From the Zoo
by Bryony Dunne

“Documentation — or even a contemplative pursuit — is met with a degree of antagonism where public space is almost inaccessible in Cairo. The clamor of the streets have become perpetual and monumental, and it is becoming increasingly difficult to be present as a recorder of things.”  (Sara El Adl, Curator of Townhouse Gallery, Cairo.)

prism #25.11: 'Soffice' by Chiara Salvi

by Chiara Salvi 

Soffice analyses artist sister’s knee injury and her wounds both scientifically and emphatically. It explores faulty physique, healing process and rehabilitation.

prism #25.10: 'Hidden Dimensions' by Anna Yeroshenko

Hidden Dimensions
by Anna Yeroshenko

Hidden Dimensions is a series of images of architecture converted into photographic sculptures. This work serves to transform the viewer’s vision of what otherwise would be unnoticed, ordinary buildings. While the urban development shortens the lifespan of contemporary architecture, these utilitarian structures on the outskirts of cities seem to endure the time.
