“Polish misia” is about depicting and presenting a psychological and sociological phenomenon, which seems to have been present “since forever”, but has never been talked about in this context. In this project women show their deep bond, relations with “a teddy bear”, emphasising their amorous approach towards these toys. The photo story is completed with the memories connected with this “fluffy friend”.
In my work I speak using an open text. It can be read in two or even three very different ways. I move between the document and creation. The work is a satirical comment on pop culture and the over-erotised image of a woman in the modern world. The work is also to show the eroticisation of modern life, the desire to uncover oneself and emanate with sexuality, and at the same time is a collection of “licked bears”, continuing in the old tradition of collection in photography. Of course, I was also the director influencing people and situations, thanks to which I created some phenomena, “falsifying” reality, creating through these actions facts regarded as valid and real.
