Installation by Marta Michalowska featuring a triptych of films:
Without Reflection, Without Shadow and Without.

On show at Kronenboden, Schwedenstrasse 16, 13357 Berlin.

In the triptych of films set in an empty room surrounded by trees and fallen leaves spilling from the screen, Marta Michalowska takes us on a journey through the landscapes of northern Poland and the internal landscapes marked by mourning. We follow a solitary woman to a score by British composer Billy Cowie.

The work was prompted by the powerful image of a claustrophobic house enveloped in grief with all its mirrors covered by white sheets, preventing a tormented soul endlessly bouncing between them. The image provoked an exploration of death and loss. The triptych is a meditation on grief.

Without Reflection and Without Shadow were commissioned by The Wapping Project for the exhibition Undiscovered Landscapes at its now former home, Wapping Hydraulic Power Station, in 2011. The complete triptych of films premiered at the Whitechapel Gallery in September 2016.
