Gallery 2 – Agnieszka Kurant
Born in Lotz, Poland and now based in New York, Agnieszka Kurant has developed an exciting body of interdisciplinary work that explores the ways in which the immaterial and imaginary – such as fictions, rumors, and phantoms, influence political and economic systems of the contemporary world. For the artist’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, Kurant weaves together the phenomena of collection intelligence, hybrid authorship, outsourced labor, and virtual capital to create a stunning presentation of installation and sculpture. Some works in the show move or disappear magically, while others seem to have an agency of their own. Bridging the gaps between fiction and reality, the invisible and tangible, the past and present, Kurant analyzes the shifting status of objects as they relate to complex relationships between value, authorship, distribution, and production.
Since 2004, Kurant’s work has been exhibited at museums worldwide including MoMA PS1, Palais de Tokyo, Witte de With, Tate Modern, and most notably, at the Polish Pavilion during the 2010 Venice Biennale International Architecture Exhibition. Last November, she opened her first major exhibition in New York at Sculpture Center. The artist is currently in a group show entitled “All that Falls” at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, and has upcoming shows at Moderna Museet in Malmo, Sweden (group) and a solo show at Boykyrka Konsthal in Stockholm, opening in October.
