Agata Biskup

In her practice, she has moved beyond the limits of the medium of painting to focus on the analysis of artistic approaches that migrate from the field of art to a non-artistic space.

She graduated from the Faculty of Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow. In her practice, she has moved beyond the limits of the medium of painting to focus on the analysis of artistic approaches that migrate from the field of art to a non-artistic space. She employs a variety of means of expression and techniques, adopting their language so that it reflects the non-linearity of narration that interests her. This way, she can formulate her own “grammar” of her message that emphasises the condition of the simultaneous separation and connection of the field of visual arts and those fields that are not automatically related to it. Among her recent initiatives is the opening of an artists run space David Robertson (with Przemek Czepurko). This space is dedicated to the analysis of authorship and the position of the artist in the art world, in particular in its linguistic representation. Projects realised there are not of cyclical nature, while the rhythm and nature of particular events are rooted in areas from beyond the field of art (http://www.davidrobertson.pl).

Projects she took part in include among others:

Behind Togetherness [nGbK, Berlin and Galeria HIT / transit.sk, Bratislava, 2014] Jeff Koons’ Gloves (CSW Kronika, Bytom, 2012), Hell of Things (CSW Kronika, Bytom, 2009), Painting. No Frames (BWA Wrocław – Galleries of Contemporary Art, Wrocław, 2009). Co-author Musicians II, film presented at the 13th T-Mobile NEW HORIZONS International Film Festival (Wrocław 2013). Author of book Xanadu (Krakow, 2010).

(…) Behind Togetherness

Reading collectivity is a complex process – we feel an itch to have a look at lines that follow, at words that have not been said or gestures that have not been made, to see what is behind the thick wall of the term “collectively”.
