Agnieszka Polska at The New Infinity
The Happiest Thought by Agnieszka Polska
We are thrilled to announce that Agnieszka Polskas latest work "The Happiest Thought" will be exhibited during the second edition of The New Infinity as part of Berliner Festspiele/Immersion in co-production with Planetarium Hamburg and Kunsthaus Kreuzberg/Bethanien. Agnieszka Polka's works adress the pressing environmental issues that questions our individual responsibility to society. While merging animated photographes and filmed sequences, Agnieszka Polska combines her visual and acoustic choices to maximize their impact on the viewers perception. Her intention is to take her audience on a hallucinatory journey that combines historical references with her poetic sense for interpretation, creating a catastrophic atmosphere on the cosmic scale. It is a poetic sound essay exploring the earth's biosphere as it was before the Permian-Triassic extinction event. This is the longest mass extinction in the earth's history, where up to 90% of the planet's vegetation died out. The reasons for this calamitous event, which happened 250 million years ago, still remain a mystery. The immersive visual essay is now on display in Hamburg and will be exhibited later on in the Mobile Dome Berlin.
