2020: Agnieszka Mastalerz: PORTFOLIO

Young female artist based in Warsaw (PL) and Braunschweig (DE).

 

Her main focus is mechanisms of control and processes influencing and exploiting an individual. She uses her poetic visual language to point out restrictive rules established within intimate relationships, communities, states, or companies, and towards the natural environment. While working with Michał Szaranowicz they analyse movements of the bodies and change of their levels, regulated by the dominant structures.

 

Agnieszka is a graduate of the Studio of Spatial Activities by Mirosław Bałka at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw (2018), student of Candice Breitz and Eli Cortiñas at Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Braunschweig (DAAD scholarship for 2019/20), guest by Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin at the HFBK in Hamburg (2017/18). She also holds a degree in cultural studies from the University of Warsaw (2015).

 

She exhibited in Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, Starak Family Foundation in Warsaw (2019), Deichtorhallen in Hamburg, Fondation Hippocrène in Paris (2018), Museum of Modern Art (laureate of the 16. Hestia Artistic Journey Competition) and Zachęta - National Gallery of Art in Warsaw (2017).
