Gilman contemporary is pleased to exhibit  "Snow Pool," a selection of  photographs from Maria Svarbova's "Swimming Pool" series. Slovakian photographer Svarbova was recently named a winner of the 2018 Hasselblad Master award in fine art. Her work visits the vintage feeling swimming pools of Slovakia, and demonstrate a keen eye for contemporary culture. These images often show a solitary figure in the sparse and austere public swimming pools, at once playful, and serious, Svarbova has mastered the space to create a signature aesthetic.

Artist ( Description ): 

Slovakian photographer Maria Svarbova creates hauntingly still images of women in Socialist Era public swimming pools. Early on, her photographic work moved from traditional portraits to capture wider topics, generating works with unmistakably characteristic atmosphere. Addressing the loneliness and isolation of contemporary life, her work manages to be both non-sentimental and emotionally powerful. Cool stillness, striking color palette and unspoken tension of Maria's artwork led to international recognition, including photographs published in The Guardian, or displayed on the famous Taiwanese landmark, 101 skyscraper. Mária Švarbová was born in 1988 in Slovakia. She studied conservation - restoration and archeology, however since 2010 she has been dedicated to photography as her main tool of artistic expression. She lives and works in Bratislava, Slovakia.
