Ihar Paulau is part of #TheGalleryProject. #TheGalleryProject includes artworks from 47 artists from 27 different countries. Each work reflects a unique perspective and as a whole, the exhibition series refuses to present a standardized narrative. Rather, it becomes clear that being queer means something different to each artist, whether sexually, politically, or aesthetically.
Each artist represented in the exhibition has developed their own strategies for coping with their lived realities and addressing (or not addressing) them in their art. The works displays sex, fragility, anger, courage, hope, nihilism, strength, fear, and beauty.
About the artist:
Ihar Paulau began taking photographs as a child in Belarus, but shelved his camera when he pursued painting in art school. He went on to study humanities and design at university before returning to photography in 2013. Inspired by social situations and the natural emotions of people, Ihar travels across Europe snapping unique moments that often go unnoticed. His series, “Without a Mask,” was the winner of the inaugural “Freedom of (Self-) Expression” competition.
About the artwork:
Works from my new project “Flower Scars”. The project is devoted to a research of the relations of a human’s body and natural forms.
