Paweł Bogumił, inHuman

Edition 1, Warszawa, Editor Migavka sp. z o.o., 6x7 Gallery Warszawa

The meeting is the starting point for the inHUMAN series.
Paweł Bogumił

Leica 6×7 Gallery Warsaw presents  the Pawel Bogumil’s book with the tricky title ‘inHUMAN’. This word play perfectly illustrates the extreme feelings we experience looking at 40 black and white photographs of monkeys portrayed by the artist through the bars and glass screens of European zoos.

Some of the photographs make us subconsciously afraid of these mighty animals – others make us wonder what the person in the photograph is thinking about. We subconsciously that we are looking at an animal. The skilfully made Bogumil’s portraits make the hair stand up on the back of our necks.

The photographs are accompanied by texts by Adam Mazur, Agata Czarnacka and Maciej Trojan as well as a recording of Wojtek Wieteska’s conversation with Pawel Bogumil. 

 

Maciej Trojan: “In 1835 a then extraordinary animal was brought to the London Zoo – a chimpanzee named Tommy. 0Two years later an orangutan named Jenny was shown to the general public. This was the victorian era – monkeys exposed in public were dressed up in children’s clothing and the crowd could see them eat and drink using spoons, plates and cups. The visitors’ interest was combined with apparent anxiety and when Queen Victoria herself visited the zoo in 1842 she noted down in her diary: ‘Jenny seemed unpleasantly and unbearably human’.
Nothing has changed since then. Thousands of people can be seen in zoos every day. Observing the behaviour of monkeys – and in particular apes – makes them inevitably smile or feel anxious. Both of these reactions occur when we observe animals show behaviour that we recognize as typically human. It is then that it becomes apparent to us that we are animals as well – relatives of the non-human primates.”
