Armwrestling on PETRIe


One of my project, which also is my passion, ARMWRESTLING was published today on PETRIe Magazine.

"Arm-wrestling is a fierce and highly-addictive combat sport. Despite it apparently involving only one part of the body, it actually activates the body and mind entirely, propelling the two combatants into an all-encompassing rush of energy and drive. Every angle of every joint in a competitor's arm is significant. The sport is associated with raw, sharply-focused strength that often sets a tone of superhumanity, channelled from an otherworldly dimension. This is what North-Western UK-based photographer Tomasz Wisniowski looks for, in his recent photographic project, Arm-Wrestling – a glance into the superhuman.

The experience can be described using a language of physicality, strength, and combative energies but the true source of endurance and power at the heart of the sport is harder to evoke and articulate. Wisniowski employs a visual language of desire and corporeality that strangely translates into an understanding of immateriality, of transcendence of the body, from the moment of contact and tension to one beyond temporal or spatial limits: a moment of absolute human capacity and strength that might as well last forever.
