The photograph, Bride, was taken in the Salar de Uyuni - with around 10,000 km² the largest salt desert in the world. The artist presents herself in a blood-red wedding dress, the color spreads out in the water, a seemingly endless, surreal landscape. Bride deals with the myth of marriage in all its dichotomies - from a festive ceremony to an economic act, from fertility to transience. The red-colored white dress expresses the existential aspects of femininity and corporeality, of creation and fertility, of guilt and suffering. For example, a high percentage of marriages worldwide are still associated with physical violence. Marcin, however, is less of a victim than the protagonist.
