The project concept: "Leather of the old world" is a kind of reinterpretation of historical memory, given through the return of tactile-tangible corporeality of the history, which was reflected in the photographs from the artist's family archive. The juxtaposition of the everyday reality and personal destiny, conveyed through the interaction between the photographic documentation and the old leather plates, which bear the imprint of the historically-extended time, raises the artistic expression from the accidental to the generalized. The juxtaposition of material and photography enhances the individuality, bringing us closer to people long gone. Placed on the leather plates, old photographs indeed acquire a "new corporeality" and a new depth, forcing a different view on the historical context, on the time of revolutions and wars, which is deprived of acute social uniqueness of the interpretation and supplemented with an emotionally charged personal message.
