Agnieszka Brzeżańska was born in 1972 in Gdansk, Poland. She lives and works in Warsaw and Berlin.
Brzeżańska works in painting, video and photography and her practice is marked by a performative quality to making that constantly cross-references bodies of knowledge from science to philosophy, from desire to spirituality. Her work is open to heterogeneous components and brings together a complex array of influences, which are rarely explicit. While appearing to be abstract, Brzeżańska’s paintings contain intensities, flows and energies found in nature that are often invisible or transient.
Solo exhibitions include Nomas Foundation, Rome, 2012, Kunsthaus Baselland, Basel and DAAD Galerie, Berlin in 2010. The monograph, L’artiste, le modèle et la peinture was published in 2010 by Sternberg Press.
