The majority of Iwona Konart’s film experiments originate from her work in the field of artistic books, her main area of creative activity. The film The Limits of Human Possibilities is a cinematic version of an earlier drawing and photography work. Akin to her other works, Konart initiates a string of complex inter-medial relations between drawing, performance art, photography and film. She creates an autonomous closed structure, a platform for solving a particular artistic problem. The artist elaborates the narration set out in the title by contrasting the shape of the human body with the contour of a mountain range.
