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 Her intention is to take her audience on a hallucinatory journey that combines historical references with her poetic sense for interpretation, creating a catastrophic atmosphere on the cosmic scale.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.

Zofia Kulik & KwieKulik | Quotes from the Archive

Opening: Friday, 28 June 2019 from 6 to 9 pm
Exhibition: June 29 – August 31, 2019


We are delighted to announce that ŻAK | BRANICKA has expanded its partnership with artist Zofia Kulik and together have co-founded the Kulik KwieKulik Foundation. The main goal of this project is to promote Zofia Kulik’s practice, both during the period of cooperation with former partner Przemysław Kwiek, the artistic duo known as KwieKulik, and later in her solo career as an independent artist.
The inaugural presentation titled Quotes from the Archive, will focus on Zofia Kulik’s avant-garde concept of archive building – a revolutionary approach that tackles archiving as an essential artistic practice. Illustrating this, the work The Light of a Dead Star (1979, presented at De Appel in Amsterdam that same year), a focal piece of the presentation, refers to the work of KwieKulik done since 1970 and presented as a sequence of events until its formal introduction to the West in 1979. With this in mind, the gallery space will merge with the Foundation for the next three months and be exclusively dedicated to it.
