Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

"It happens that the person who stares at a bright spot for a long time dies to external reality, or that reality takes to dying around him" writes Paul Nouge in L'homme en proie aux images; the photographer gracefully describes this floating of vision that Zuzanna Rokita precisely seeks in her works. I don't know if she has ever looked the sun straight in the eye until sparkling phosphenes appear, but her pictorial and photographic work is centred on the permanent quest for the most sensitive representation of light possible. The artist who says she "tries to portray light", which is the source of our perception of reality as well as of any image, nevertheless refuses to represent its sources and prefers to rely on luminous sensations to give a material interpretation. For example, she uses layers, cuts and superimpositions on the surface of a black canvas, until the white emerges, by dint of transparencies and opacities. It is also the use of spray cans, whose sprayed paint is deposited in light layers on its support. It is also the use of an empty slide projector that projects a new screen onto his canvases, luminous matter that is superimposed on other luminous matter. It is also, finally, her work of photograms for which she uses ambiguous objects, which capture the light and restore it in materiality sometimes of great density, sometimes almost vanishing: tracing paper, sugar, plastic bags... Zuzanna Rokita's work is austere and precise, but this is not refinement or a stylistic effect: the only thing that counts in her compositions is the pure contemplation of a vibrant optical sensation Camille Poulhan

Over the past 5 years, I have focused my art around light. I’m
wandering through the world and collecting the light samples. My artwork is an attempt to
preserve a very unique moment of the light process, which takes
place at a particular time of day and in certain environments. By means of my quasi
photographic objects between art and science I am constantly re-examining my relationship to an
actual place and its representation. To put light and time in perspective, I`m seeking to
discover new dimensions in order to re-consider images that one assimilates through visual
experience. It`s a tool that allows me as the viewer to be released from all initial perceptions
imposed. It invites our vision to direct our brain toward other horizons, offering new
possibilities.
