Beyond the Body

Tomasz Gudzowaty in the eyes of Nan Goldin

Nan Goldin - the famous American artist, focusing in her work on her own life as well as that of her friends and acquaintances, artistic bohemians and groups on the margins of society - and Tomasz Gudzowaty, who made his name in the world of photography through numerous award-winning documentary projects, many of them exploring sports outside the mainstream. The book is the result of an unlikely meeting of these two artists, who represent diametrically different personalities, sensibilities, and modes of artistic creation, yet both of whom stand behind a stunningly clear and consistent vision.  Goldin draws on the rich material from Gudzowaty’s archive to create her own narrative - detached from its original thematic context and purpose to form a continuous flow of images that together go deeper to a metaphysical dimension of sport. The people in the photographs - flying, floating, upside down - strive to escape, to liberate themselves from their corporeal limitations, to push past their physical boundaries in order to arrive at a mystical state of mind. As Goldin lucidly puts it: "they are breaking the rules of how we are bound to the earth".
