Galleria Raffaella Cortese
Milan, Italy

Galleria Raffaella Cortese is delighted to present the fourth solo show by Czech photographer Jitka Hanzlová, following her first major presentation in her native country at the National Gallery Prague in 2019, SILENCES, curated by Adam Budak.

In the past 30 years Hanzlová has depicted, series after series, image after image, portraits of a world in which subjects exist in a non-hierarchical composition: people, nature, animals, architecture exist in a unity of sense, and yet, in all their specificity and contradicting moments. “A single pear tree does not make a forest – or does it?” asks Urs Stahel: can a single portrait, a single landscape, be telling signs of wholeness?
