Description

„Flora” is a large format decorative textile piece made in jacquard technique. The composition woven from polyester thread depicts a distorted female silhouette surrounded by various plant species – the title’s flora. Arms, legs, stems and flowers recall finger drawings in the sand. In Brzeżańska’s work they become liquid-like, as if seen through stirred water. Superimposed images of the naked body, the flora and the river create an illusion of the third dimension in which it’s not clear what’s on the surface and what’s on the bottom. The three colours, out of the usual context of such a scene, add a psychedelic vibe.
Secret powers of the elements, concealed knowledge and vital energy are the subjects often explored by Agnieszka Brzeżańska. Together with Ewa Ciepielewska and Razem Pamoja Foundation she runs a long-term project “Flow / Przepływ” in which a group of people participates in a flow down Vistula or another river, spending a couple of days together on the river. “Flora” is a part of a diptych presented for the first time in a group exhibition “Goddesses” – along with Jan Dobkowski’s and Zuza Krajewska’s works – in BWA Warszawa gallery during Warsaw Gallery Weekend 2018. That same year Agnieszka Brzeżańska was awarded The ING Polish Art Foundation Prize.
