“In the photo series Infinity Krystyna Ziach shows us that the symbol firstly functions for the individual or for a certain collectivity which identifies with it. The symbol therefore has a unifying and social function.The Shinto temples, the secret rooms, with their surreal play of light and darkness and the nature created by humans with incredible care and attention in the Imperial Gardens illustrate the fundamental aspects of Japanese culture. A culture with an eye for order and harmony, always essentially in relation to nature, which points at the connection between heaven and earth, the permanent interaction between spirituality and humanity.There is a meaning in the repetition of the never ending sequence of gates or in the accumulation of thousands of Buddhas which tell us that there is potentially a Buddha hiding in each of us…”
Flor Bex “The symbolic imagery of Krystyna Ziach”, from book Infinity & Archê”
