Krzysztof Pijarski’s photographic tableaux create visual, historic stages on which different times and spaces come together and remarkable layerings of time and space emerge. His complex strategy of mediation, drawing on memories, temporal juxtapositions, and spatial arrangements, lends form to material he has collected over the course of many years. To these constellations of images he adds legends that provide historic background and offer hints as to how the tableaux should be read and what aspects should be considered when looking at the pictures and particularly at the arrangements. Pijarski works not only with temporal juxtapositions, but also with various techniques of spatial overlap. He arranges diverse perspectives of a place side by side, allowing them to overlap and interpenetrate one another to such a profound degree that they seem to merge into a single perspective, melting together almost organically.
