VISIONS OF POLAND
polska-tak   Barbara Chandler writes:

"This series of shows was curated by Christian du Plessis of the Heifer Gallery and was held at the Posk Gallery in the Polish Centre in Hammersmith, West London, in 1992, 1993, and 1994. It captures the mood, landscape and people of Poland in the1980s and early 1990s, and was the result of many trips to Poland, to stay with a friend, who had become close during his visit(s) to Britain. I was welcomed in particular by his sister and mother."
Visions of Poland was also shown in Warsaw, in 1991 at the prestigious Stara Kordegarda Gallery at the Palace on the Lake in Lazienki Park. It was featured on Polish television, and received good press coverage in Britain.
Barbara has also included images taken on later visits to Poland, and therefore not in the original show.
More recently, in 2009, Barbara showed an edited version of VISIONS OF POLAND at the Truman Brewery, in the Tent London design show, Brick Lane, East London, during the London Design Festival. The photographs depicted life in rural Poland in the early 90s, and supported an exhibition of modern Polish design entitled Polska Folk.
