The relationship between man and the reality can be described in three ways:
discovering, crossing and creating space. 

This dynamic also defines the way Anna Barlik approaches her work as an artist.
Discovering - the artist pays particular attention to the interactions between human and the reality in  he/she lives. She proves that one entity cannot exist without the other. The reality is a natural environment in which man exists, and this principle works both ways. 
Crossing  - Barlik understands crossing space as a cooperation with already existing reality. As an artist, she is able to influence and change already existing space. Her activities never have destructive character. 
Creating - The third of ways she building that space from the start.
She creates a reality in her own individual way – it is not dependent on any external factors. The final stage of her activity is photography through which she perpetuates action observed or staged by herself.
