Summary/Abstract: The text examines multi-faceted formal and meaning-related relationships in photo-media projectsby Natalia LL: performances such as Points of Support (Punkty podparcia), the Eagle constellation (1978) and the Pyramid (1979), which present the artist against the background of a broader nature. They bring up several important issues related to the innovativeness of a neo-avant-garde photograph of Wroclaw of the 1970s, i.e. permanent art and isomorphism that implement a conceptual metatextuality of a given work, post-manuality breaking with the modernist paradigm of art, multimedia nature, incorporating a performance, film and verbal text into the medium of photography used in an unusual way, the issue of a creative use of the nature-garden theme in experimental activities. As referred in the article the photo-media art by Natalia LL shows the artist as a deconstructing creator, a contemporary Eve who arranges the space of nature in a demiurgical way, arranging her feminine body in an artistic sign — and thus creates her self-reflexive and feminist compositions. At the same time, the text focuses on the pioneering nature and perversity of this art, as Natalia LL provocativelytoys with the archetypal nature-garden, keeps a modernist individualism and longing for metaphysics,ironic ambiguity, and humour of a simple message.
