To close NN’s Ways to think about diaspora exhibition, we are looking back at our Poland International exhibition held at NN last summer. Artists Brud, Agata Kleczkowska and Wojtek Doroszuk will be talking about their practice and Brud will be leading a performance-lecture.
Brud In 2014 the artists Aditya Mandayam & Ada Pola quit their solo practices and metamorphosed into the Indo-Polish art-parasite Brud. Based in a slaughterhouse in central Warsaw, their two latest artworks are Kurz, an analog cryptocurrency, & Szybolet, an open-source operating system meant to be ‘installed in the presence of art’.
Agata Kleczkowska lives and works in Warsaw. Agata Kleczkowska is predominantly a painter working with oil on canvas but also works with mixed media works and embroidery. Her imagery ranges from mountains to wolves, tigers and other beasts, hands, cubes, triangles with graphic, angular colour and overlays of arrows, dots and symbols.
Festen by Wojtek Doroszuk takes as its inspiration the paintings of the 17th century Flemish animalist artists, such as Frans Snyder, Jan and Ferdinand Van Kessel combined with post humanistic experimentation to envisage a future world in which the human has disappeared.
