20 June 2013 - 20 July 2013

Press Release

Exhibition Catalogue

Artist Info

Agnieszka Brzeżańska works in painting, video and photography. Her practice is marked by a performative quality to making. It constantly cross-references bodies of knowledge from science to philosophy, desire to spirituality. The work brings together a complex array of influences, which are rarely explicit and allow the work to open itself to heterogeneous components.

A photograph of herself or another figure, where the making of the work formally gets in the way of the image. A painting of and in shadows, where the body flows into the work it is making. Patterns emerge everywhere. From something as ephemeral as the shadow of her own reflection, a perception of her embodied self, to the Theory of Everything sought in particle physics. From the murmuration of birds in flight to platonic solids and essential geometrical forms.

While appearing to be abstract, Agnieszka’s paintings contain intensities, flows and energies found in nature, that are often invisible or transient.

Agnieszka Brzezanska was born in 1972 in Gdansk. She lives and works in Warsaw and Berlin. Recent solo exhibitions include Nomas Foundation, Rome, 2012, Kunsthaus Baselland and DAAD Galerie, Berlin in 2010. Her monograph, L’artiste, le modèle et la peinture was published in 2010 by Sternberg Press.
