„Borrowed Plot“ is a series of fifteen photographs that interpret famous literary, musical or art narratives. Some of the photographs offer an unusual, creative approach to a popular topic, others directly illustrate the story, and still others simply translate it into the language of photography. However, it’s not the creative approach to a specific plot, but the aim to assign the Viewer an active and equally important role in the creative process, that unifies the photographs in this series.
The exhibition allows the Viewer to not only observe, but also take part in the creative process alongside the author – by first recognizing a popular work of art, and then co-creating a new artistic reality, based on the known one.
„Borrowed Plot“ is a confident, but at the same time, respectful survey of both the classical works of art, and the Viewer. It relies on the audience’s erudition, intellect and fantasy, and openly provokes the public.
Like any exhibition, „Borrowed Plot“ is in a way a continuation of the intimate dialogue between the Author and each of his Viewers. Here, this specific dialogue turns into a conversation between more than two participants. Besides the Author and the Viewer, you can expect contributions from Mozart, Lewis Carroll, Andersen, Van Eyck, Balthus and Velázquez.
