Representing Poland at La Biennale di Venezia 2017 is Sharon Lockhart (b. 1964). An American artist, Lockhart lives in Los Angeles and Poland, working with communities to make films and photographs that are both visually compelling and socially engaged through collaborations that unfold over long periods of time. Created with young women from the Youth Sociotherapy Center in Rudzienko, Poland, Little Review comprises translations, a new film and series of photographs, as well as educational workshops. The project draws inspiration from the work of Janusz Korczak (1878-1942), the Polish-Jewish educator, orphanage-director and children’s rights advocate.
Sharon Lockhart, Little Review, Polish Pavilion, until 26 November, La Biennale di Venezia, Venice.
