Andrii Dostliev (Poland)

During the residency Andrii Dostliev continued his ongoing visual research on queer identity issues as seen through the vernacular photography editing practices. This research is based on the archive of altered amateur photographs (containing several thousand entries so far, mostly coming from Central and Eastern Europe, catalogued and tagged), which Dostliev started assembling in early 2017 and explores the patterns in digital photo alteration and the balance between self-representation and hiding one’s own identity created by these photo alterations.
