Libera's first solo show in Raster was also his first solo exhibition in Warsaw since 1996 (sic!). The show featured two groups of works: black-and-white photographs from 1980's and the artist's most recent project "La Vue". Both are linked by the technique and divided by 20 years during which both Libera's oeuvre as well as its historical and political context have gone through significant changes. Developed for the first time, prints from the 80's depict the largely unknown world of the artist's interest and fascinations. It is an intriguing, and sometimes dark and shocking, journey through human existence and its medium - the body. While "La Vue" is a series of large-scale color photographs, half-abstract views being a result of a photographic examination of the inside of glossy magazines and albums, seen through macro lens. This symbolic return to "freedom of seeing" - an attempt at freeing the sight from the control of commercialized visual culture, dominated by mass media and advertising industry.
