Agata Bogacka's landscape, close to an abstract, presents a horizon which illustrates her grandmother’s history. In exile after the outbreak of the Warsaw Uprising, each day for 12 days she wrote down what she experienced during her journey from her flat in Warsaw to Podkowa Leśna. Bogacka’s painting represents this journey. Lines which cross over and reach above the horizon represent places where Krystyna M. came to one-way streets and had to go back. The artist balances between representation and abstraction, conveying the uncertainty of human fate.
