Łagodny zarys nogi
pod wąską opięta spódnicą.
Unoszę.
Moje nogi.
Królestwo gam i kolorów.

A gentle line of leg
under a slender tight skirt.
I raise.
My legs.
A kingdom of gamuts and colors.

Pod tańcem
złotych lamp
fruwają nisko
proste anioły pragnień (…)

Underneath the dance
of the golden lamps
the simple angels of desires
fly low (…)

self-portrait with legs II
(August 21, 2015)
Location: Dallas Museum of Art, TX, US

It was another “crowded” Late Night at the Dallas Museum of Art.
We travelled through the decades of the 20th centuary,
starting in the 1920s and ending in the 1990s, with music,
tours, films and so much more.
Ah, what a journey!


About (à la Vivian Maier) project:
I wish to look at myself in all reflected streets
and places I will be passing by.
These self-portraits are inspired
by Vivian Maier’s self-portraiture:

W zapachu konwalii goją się rany
i otwierają się szczeliny w ziemi
ziejące próżnią bez dna.

In the fragrance of the lily of the valley wounds heal
and the cracks in the earth open
gaping in a bottomless void.
