press release

Agata Bogacka\'s (born 1976) latest works differ significantly from the ones exhibited during her first solo show in Raster in 2004. Plain figural scenes have yielded to sequences of events taking place in one picture. It is the viewer\'s task to arrange the narrative and the artist herself does not conceal the fact that the creative process was based on the surrealist game of (the lack of) associations between subsequent motifs. But the distinctive aura of Bogacka\'s works remains the same - eroticism is invariably tinged with sadness, longing and lack of fulfillment.

In December Agata Bogacka\'s paintings will also be presented at the POLISH PAINTING OF THE 21st CENTURY exhibition in Zacheta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw.
