Identity Bending
Katarzyna Kozyra in Uppsala konstmuseum, SE
Opening: Friday, 27 January, 2018
The exhibition will run until 1 April, 2018

Starting with a critical ques­tion, Katarzy Kozyra's art projects embark on journeys that last for many years and often have a severe impact on her personal life. The exhibition draws a line from early art works such as the video installation Men's Bathhouse, where Kozyra disguised as a man entered the male area of Gellért Bathhouse in Budapest, to the most recent project Looking for Jesus. Together with a film crew Kozyra has been spending days and nights with individuals who have decided to leave everything in their search for God. The phenomenon is often described as "The Jerusalem Syndrome”.
