Agnieszka Aleksandra Dlugosz, born in 1980
I come from Krakow, where I studied Film and Mass Media at the Jagiellonian University. The theoretical research I made during the Masters course in Poland has strongly influenced my artistic explorations at The University of the Arts London. I have recently graduated from the Chelsea College of Art and Design. I live and Work in London.
The Curve is the title for my current body of work, which marks a turn in my approach to painting. The three-dimensional paintings manifest their separation from the tradition of silent and passive flatness through the excess of the curve. They actively reach for the physical and cognitive space of the viewer. They protrude from the flat surface of the wall, revealing an unreadiness to simply belong. They are a screen for images that celebrate their own distortion. They reach for the real: isn’t two-dimensional flatness a distortion of reality in the first place?
