In City Breath, Tany Pototska encapsulates a personal narrative of urban perception and emotion amidst conflict. Collage becomes her medium of choice, symbolising the quest for beauty amid chaos and offering a glimpse into her inner world.

Each photograph transcends the mundane, weaving stories that speak to the transformative power of art. Through City Breath, Pototska invites viewers to discover beauty in the ordinary, to reimagine urban spaces, and to engage in a visual dialogue that traverses the city's past, present, and future, resonating with her deeply felt emotions and reflections.

Tany Pototska: In my project City Breath, I have embodied my personal reflection on how I perceive and feel the city that surrounds me. Since the beginning of the war in my country, I have been searching for a way in art to find inner balance and harmony. Collage became my choice, reflecting my desire to create beauty amidst chaos and bringing order to my inner world.

Inspired by the creativity of the avant-garde, I found the courage to look at things from a new angle. This project is not only about the city but also about the emotions it evokes in me. I choose forgotten and neglected objects, old buildings that have lost their former beauty and transform them into something magical. This transformation is aesthetic and emotional, creating an alternative world where each photograph is a story that speaks more than what meets the eye.

In City Breath, every object and collage attempts to find beauty in the ordinary and turn the mundane into the extraordinary. It is my way of showing how we can reinterpret and re-interpret the space around us, find harmony in chaos, and create a new reality that goes beyond everyday perception. City Breath is not just photographs but a visual dialogue between the past, present, and future of the city, reflected through my feelings and thoughts.
