Cinema, photograph, 2014

Karolina Jonderko’s photography presents the historical Theater of Rybnik Lands. She mainly aims her lens on the empty audience area. The red, velour seats recall the glory of the building and the many guests who visited this place. In this way she returns to her childhood memories and, in a sentimental way, evokes memories of times spent there. In the context of PURO Hotels, the artist ties in to the history of Łódź, which is inextricably linked with Polish cinematography.
