Jan Durina

Krótka nota. Chciałbym zaprosić na wystawę Jana Duriny - fotografa Department of Visual Arts and Intermedia on Faculty of Arts w Koszycach na Słowacji. Wystawa pod tytułem Beneath the skin a caustic red river trwa od 16 stycznia do 10 lutego w Miejce Bar w Krakowie (ul. Estery 1). Polecam.

Wojciech Delikta
: Firstly I’d like to congratulate you on exhibiting your works in Kraków! Can you explain the meaning of the title: ‘Beneath the skin a caustic red river’ ?
Jan Durina: Thank you very much! The sentence "Beneath the skin a caustic red river" is a part taken from the lyric by Queen Adreena. Music and lyrics by QA are my huge inspiration.


W.D.
: At first glance your photographs resemble works of Nan Goldin or Juergen Teller. I think you have a lot in common. You present human behaviour, but I’m not sure if it’s fully human. Am I wrong?
J.D.: Yes, I like works of Goldin and Teller. You‛re right, I often try to reflect and refer to behaviour of human and animal and find variances between them or things they have in common, "deficiencies" of them.


W.D.
: Which words would you pick from the dictionary to describe your inspiration?

J.D.
:
Liberty, animality, imagination, mystery, a black rose in a golden cellophane

W.D.
:
Umberto Eco said in his novel 'The Name of the Rose' that there is no difference between the devilish ardour and love of seraphim. Would you agree with Eco?
J.D.:
Absolutely.
