yolaphoto-9i-001The ” 9 and ……” project is a series of images of a pregnant ballet dancer, taken during 2004 and 2005. The subject was Anna Lipczyk , soloist dancer with the Grand Theatre in Warsaw. I wanted to capture the changes experienced in this time by a particular woman, by women artists for whom the body is a working tool. The time is a difficult one, with choices between the arts of dance and motherhood.

The initial exhibition was held in the Old Gallery ZPAF in Warsaw, in March 2005. Further presentations followed in 2005 to 2007 – the UNA gallery in Budapest, The Polish Institute also in Budapest, Gallery Pakamera in Suwalki, north-eastern Poland, and the Gallery of Modern Art in Wloclawek and in Pruszkow, both in central Poland. In 2012 the project was displayed again, being featured in the Gallery at the Castle Museum of Bielsko-Biala in southern Poland.
