Bogdan Perzyński presents video work in an exhibition, Retreat, at Liliana Bloch Gallery. Rachel Rogerson, curator of the exhibition, states:

Retreat explores our relationship with nature. Through video and photography that reflects the human condition, artists investigate this topic. Home foundations sit lonely amidst sprawling vistas. Lush forests provide little evidence of humanity. Concrete structures dominate cityscapes. What remnants of humanity do we impose on our environment? What features of nature do we attempt to possess?

Retreat will be on view August 1 – September 5, 2015.
