Event Description

T e n d e r p i x e l G a l l e r y proudly presents: Pia Nebula, a new body of work by Polish artist Ania Dabrowska.

Pia Nebula explores the boundaries and narrative-spaces of transgender identities in a fatalistic universe—infused with forces that are out of our control. Dabrowska attempts to make sense of the ‘black holes’ of our personal universes — those regions within that have a gravitational field so powerful that nothing, not even the ‘visible light’, our empirical knowledge, can escape its pull. What roles can science, religion and culture play in this diegetic space, and how is contemporary society realigning these concepts?

Ania Dabrowska's photography synthesizes Pia's physical existence within the cosmos both physically and metaphorically: Pia is a transsexual whose body and life have undergone transformations based on deep rooted considerations of philosophy and mythologies. Pia is a high voltage force: She is a drummer in a punk band, a performer, a theatre set builder, and a dancer; she lives in an old-school warehouse studio in Hackney Wick. In this work the attention is focused on a tale of subjectivity, the deconstruction of one's identity in contexts of astrology, philosophy, and body politics.


Ania Dabrowska lives and works in London. She is the recipient of the Wellcome Trust People Award (2008/09). Recent exhibitions include: The Bunker Show, This Is Not A Gateway Festival, Circles of Latitude, Into the Open, Four Corners Gallery, London, Hosted, Leitersdof, Austria (2008), National Portrait Gallery Photography Portrait Prize, LCC, Roncalliplatz, Cologne, Germany (2007). She is an MA Photography graduate of the LCC, University of the Arts London.
