24 Oct – 5 Nov 2016
In Autumn 2016 we welcomed photographer and artist Ewa Monika Zebrowski to Hauser & Wirth Somerset as artist-in-residence at The Maltings studios in Bruton.
As part of her residency, Ewa has produced the artist book ‘24 Hours in Somerset’. The book features poetic text alongside photographs taken by Ewa. The cover of the book and sleeve includes details of grasses from Oudolf Field, at Hauser & Wirth Somerset.
Ewa’s work touches on the themes of displacement and memory, time and place, the traces we leave behind. She creates visual narratives often inspired by literature, sometimes collaborating with writers and poets.
Her work has been shown internationally in over 70 exhibitions, including 28 solo presentations. She has produced 16 artist’s books including ‘remembering brodsky’, ‘tenuta di ricordi’, ‘Sea of Lanterns’, ‘Finding Wyeth’, and most recently, ‘twombly, italia’. Her artist’s books have garnered numerous awards and recognition.
Ewa lives and works in Montreal, Canada. She worked in the lm industry for 17 years before obtaining a BFA in Fine Arts/Photography from Concordia University, Montreal, Canada and an MA in Visual Arts, from l’Université de Québec à Montréal, Montreal, Canada.
‘24 Hours in Somerset: A Winters Tale’ is an edition of 30 and is available to buy from Hauser & Wirth Somerset and Hauser & Wirth New York. Retail price: £725.
