Aneta Grzeszykowska

BORN 1974, Warszawa

Aneta Grzeszykowska works with photographs as one would with an archive. Her projects, chiefly photographic ones, are never simple sequences, but rather advanced manipulations in art history and ontology. She parodies classic photographic series, such as Cindy Sherman’s Untitled Film Stills, merges images to create portraits of nonexistent people (Portraits, 2006), and collects family photographs to then erase her own image from them (Album, 2005). She also explores the themes of corporeality, visibility, and invisibility in cinematic pieces. She holds a graphic arts degree from the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts. Since 1999, she has collaborated with Jan Smaga. Her works have been shown at the Berlin Biennale (2006) and the Heidelberger Kunstverein (2010).

Description

Kate’s Portfolio is a personal, intimate survey of a young woman’s wardrobe. The pictures present a total of 91 various sets, from everyday clothes, through winter clothes, to underwear. Grzeszykowska has combined two themes characteristic of her work: an interest in the body and repetitiveness. The different variants in which Kate is shown, rummaging through her wardrobe, are a document of the diversity of the female nature and of the laborious grappling with a daily ritual.
