11.03-19.04.2016 WEATHER PERMITTING, Rafał Milach – solo show, EGO Gallery, Poznań (Poland)
curator: Katarzyna Sagatowska
The exhibition is the first simultaneous presentation of two projects realized by Rafał Milach in Iceland. The cycle of photographs ‘In the Car with R’ was created in 2010 during the travel of the artist accompanied by an Icelandic writer Huldar Breiðfjörð. Five years after they met again during the shooting of a documentary film.
‘Weather Permitting’ is a compilation of two extremely different on the road stories. The first is the longest route that you can make around Iceland, the latter – a short passage over snowed gap. What these both stories have in common, apart from geography, is passing the way both understood as an attempt of getting to know ‘the unknown’ (photography) as well as physical struggle with the nature (film).
