[non/ places] - exhibition of Sławomir Lipnicki

The presented exhibition constitutes a picture of a tourist trip into a specific territory non- places. As a picture of negated  places those spaces are the areas of repressed memories . They define more who we are not in the previously existing place, which at that time was important and intimate.
While sightseeing we allow ourselves to experience exciting moments of being a spectator and a subiect of self created show.
However, it is non-places that make us feel that the territories do not integrate us with the "old places".
Being thrown in "between"  oblivion and present they appear to be their opposite .

Presented non-places are pictures of actual territories. One of them is a football field built in the 70-ties in the place of a Jewish cementary in Wizajny.Others are the areas of the town Vilnius , where together with my 7 year-old daughter we were searching for reminiscents of grandparents. Experiencing their absence we took photos of each other. Guarding ourselves against overflow of history of those places we discovered the myth , the essence of what happened fulfilling itself all throughout , and in each and every point in space.
