1992, POL

Agata Słowak’s paintings and installations feature straightforward, even explicit erotica, returning to the work of the Marquis de Sade or to the wildest surrealistic dreams. However, against the backdrop of today’s changes and the loosening of the relationships of sexuality, identity and morality, such a return is suddenly different, returning us to a time when perversion also had its morale. Paradoxically, it is precisely in Catholic Poland that Agata Słowak’s work also represents an important voice representing the suppressed gender diversity and personal freedom.
