Polska’s work is influenced by her research in historical archives. She sees an archive as a living organism that is “alive and subject to incessant change.” This means that history itself is constantly misremembered. It is imperfectly recorded, or reinterpreted after political change. Her hallucinatory videos fill in the gaps, accidental or deliberate, in Eastern European art history. I am the Mouth is Agnieszka Polska’s first major solo exhibition in the UK.
Exhibition view Salzburger Kunsterverein
The young Polish artist, Agnieszka Polska, is presenting a series of videos and photographs created in recent years in a large-scale installation in the Salzburger Kunstverein. Polska’s materials are illustrations from old newspapers, magazines, and books that she animates and puts together into dreamlike, surreal new videos.
