New York – November 2010, 4 Sale debuts the culmination of the year
long creative union between Aneta Bartos, Elle Muliarchyk, Yana
Toyber and Martynka Wawrzyniak. The imagery delves into universal
mores and ideals all the while producing beautiful, conceptually strong
and visually stimulating works. 4 Sale captures the essence of the
dynamic nature within this collaboration curated by Anne Huntington.

The works appropriate, suggest and formalize the collaboration within
the full photographic body. Each artist conceptualizes unique realities
within her framed vignettes, thus illustrating how each artist proclaims
her unique voice, idea and story. The process evolves through
openness, risk-taking, exploration and the incorporation of artistic and
cultural influences. The fundamental nature of the works materializes
organic and potentially controversial issues; issues that the artists
keenly acknowledge and own. This acute awareness underscores the
complexity of the project that liberates, provokes and creates a sense of
union between these four talented artists of Eastern European descent.

4 Sale presents a collection of works from the collaboration. The
physicality, sexuality and sensuality inform and deliver a pure
perspective free from taboos, victimization, male-dominance,
exploitation, and full of identity, feminism, and self-representation.
