New exhibition opening at Martin Kollár


“Martin Kollar, a photographer and cameraman presents a series of 52 photographs, prepared especially for tranzit workshops and a self-portrait documentary. The photographs on display were created in recent years and present a selection of works from multiple projects – together they form a new project entitled Tranzit. The title, proposed by Martin Kollár, accurately characterized his life and work.

Martin Kollár is a nomad, wandering around the world. He presently lives in Paris, teaches in Stuttgart and has a studio in tranzit, Zlaté piesky. Wandering as a principle of creation, there and back again, recording the different in the same, the close in the remote, the strange in the ordinary and vice versa.

He graduated from the department of Cinematography of the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava. Since his graduation he has received many grants and participated in many study stays. He has been working on several long-term projects, for which he has obtained several awards.” Táňa Hojčová.
