"In the heart of the country" fot. B. Stawiarski
The “Sunrises” series, from which the works for the Museum collection have been selected, consists of about 50 offset photographs, modified by drawings and mechanical damage done by the artist. Each picture is unique, and the collection can be reshuffled in a number of ways, presenting it in a variety of configurations. Rolando also works with materials from her home archive, such as found anonymous amateur photographs. Her pictures contain “injured” architectural elements (damaged buildings, leaking pipes, broken windows), as well as nostalgic scenes (e.g. the artist as a child), and interference from amorphous shapes (ectoplasm, wounds and “dark matter”). The tracks hinted at in the artist’s “Sunrises” series were also elaborated in a book of poetry entitled “Larch Treetops” (publ. Biuro Literackie, Wrocław, 2011).
