International Project Space artist Agata Bogacka
Agata Bogacka is a Polish artist that is primarily a painter, but she also makes drawings, photographs, objects and installations. Both abstract and conceptual art fulfill an important role in her work. She finished her studies in 2001 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, Poland. In her exhibition ‘The Egg’ Agata Bogacka will be showing several works made in Curacao during her residency period. She explains that in these works it is very important for her to unite the abstract and the figurative in one artwork.
Bogacka also provided a workshop for the students of the IBB, wherein she decided to take a very different approach. She decided to tackle the area she felt her studies lacked most of; performance art. Students were confronted with the expression of their feelings and also had to work on how to incorporate the public in their works and had to learn how to make them follow you. The workshop results by the students will also be presented in the exhibition.
