DISCO POLO

'Disco Polo is a collection of photographs presenting visual chaos in the common space. Neon colours replacing grey plattenbau from the Polish People's Republic, false plants in granite flowerpots, a roadside palm tree in a winter landscape.'

'This picture of a plastic palm tree in the fog is from Paulina Korobkiewicz’s Disco Polo project, documenting the aesthetic of Poland’s transition to global capitalism after 1989. It’s an interesting example of how Western consumerism impacted the minds, tastes, dreams, aspirations and visual culture of the country. Many oppositions meet in this shot: not just East and West. There is a sense of melancholy to it, as well as a sense of humour. This photo of a modern non-place could exist in any corner of the world —but it also reflects something very unique to Poland.'
