Kovi Konowiecki

The portraits of an Orthodox Jewish family in Kovi Konowiecki’s Bei Mir Bistu Shein represent an attempt to capture the ethereal qualities of faith and mysticism. The floral background creates a painting-like quality, evoking a liminal space between past and modernity. Konowiecki’s practice makes use of portraiture in order to address identity.
