Agnieszka Polska’s dreamlike videos explore time and memory. Born in Poland, in 1985, while it was still a communist state, she is interested in obscured histories and cultural myths, particularly those of vanished artists. Using computer animation and live action she rescues, embellishes and re-animates events that are on the verge of oblivion, using a narrative style that is both serious and playful.
Polska has had solo exhibitions at the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw, Nottingham Contemporary, Nottingham, Salzburger Kunstverein, Salzburg, and Summerhall, Edinburgh, among others. Her films have been screened at the 19th Biennale of Sydney, Sydney, Australia, International Documentary Film Festival, Copenhagen, Institute of Contemporary Arts / Lux Biennial of Moving Image, London, and the Tate Modern, London.
