On 6th August we opened a Zula Rabikowska's show Ba Lan at The Baths Gallery.

Zula was born in Poland, grew up in the UK and worked in France, China, South Africa, India, Palestine and the Caribbean.

Her practice is influenced by her own experience of immigration. In her work, she explores the themes of national identity, displacement and belonging.

Zula's project focuses on the Vietnamese diaspora in Warsaw. It seeks to understand how this community reconciles its identity in a country which believes that nationality is rooted in ethnic origin. Poland’s Communist past is central in the project and for this reason, she incorporates archival imagery into the photographs that she had taken.

With her photographic practice, Zula enables the community to articulate and re-create their identities by exploring the world from a different perspective.
