With the support of UAL Arts Temps, and as part of 10:10, PARC commissioned Magda Kuca to make a series of portraits of PARC members. Magda is studying on the MA Photography course at London College of Fashion and she has made portraits of PARC members, which will be displayed in PARCspace in October 2017.
Magda Kuca was born in 1993, in Skarżysko-Kamienna, Poland. In 2015 she obtained a BA degree in Photography at the University of Arts in Poznań, Poland. She is currently based in London.
‘I am mostly interested in historical photographic techniques, such as wet plate collodion and cyanotype, gum bichromate, leading alternative photographic workshops and introducing my photographic practice to contemporary contexts such as identity, memory and digitalisation of photography. My usual practice is to incorporate dimensional objects, including photographic glass plates, which try to cross the border of the two-dimensional image. Recently I have been commissioned by the British Museum to deliver an alternative photography workshop.’
Alongside the PARC Portraits Magda will also be exhibiting her series The Grandmothers, a wet plate collodion series with handmade objects inspired by slavic rituals and customs.
