Body of work
Klimowski Poster BookBy Andrzej Klimowski
Designed by Jeff Willis
In our digital age, when every image is available and mutable, when pornography is commonplace, Andrzej Klimowski’s collaged images – with their repertoire of naked torsos, cupids, angels and devils, faces with eyes scratched out, blindfolded or devoured by blackness – may no longer take us by surprise (See ‘Theatre of dreams’ in Eye 14). But, as the 40-odd years of work collected in Klimowski Poster Book confirm, Klimowski retains a unique power to captivate and unsettle.
