During 70’s Croatian artist Zarko Vijatovic, now living and working in Paris, has created in a sync with a conceptual multimedia artist and director Tomislav Gotovac, a complex serial of photographies. The exhibition can be seen on 18 November 2011 – 17 January 2012 in Warshaw Art museum and You can enjoy in works of these photographers and artists in collaboration: Hollis Frampton – Carl Andre, Peter Hujar – Paul Thek, Eustachy Kossakowski – Edward Krasiński, János Vető – Tibor Hajas, Žarko Vijatović – Tomislav Gotovac, Gwenn Thomas – Joan Jonas, Gwenn Thomas – Jack Smith, Babette Mangolte – Yvonne Rainer, Shunk-Kender – Pier 18.

“The nine stories told by this exhibition each concern the meeting of a photographer and an artist. Their collaboration was sometimes one-off, sometimes it would last for years, but it always resulted in common fruit: a work of art, a process, a shared world. We are interested in the working experience of these “accomplices”, and how their collaboration shaped the work that was being created. Their role wasn’t limited to just recording, they weren’t only an extension of the documenting camera – very often the process of exchange between the photographer and the artist was highly complex and determined the project’s ultimate shape.”
