Art and rights: right to well-being and healthcare

Webinar, March 24th 2021, 6.30 p.m.

Agnieszka Brzeżańska. Connected to the Earth

nctm e l‘arte is pleased to host a new conversation on the topic of the right to care and well-being.

In such occasion, the artist Agnieszka Brzeżańska will talk with Sebastian Cichocki, chief curator and head of research at the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw.

Born in 1972 in Gdańsk, and educated in both Poland and Japan, Agnieszka Brzeżańska uses a variety of artistic media to build narratives centered around relaunching towards a future of emancipation and sustainable well-being. In her work, she also considers the links between different forms of life and natural forces on Earth.

Her frequent returns to the precursory knowledge of natural healing methods, as well as her approach to creating works in the form of everyday objects and tools, are both ways of alluding to the possibility of actively entering into a relationship with the essence of existence – for example, she has been organizing an artistic residency on a boat that gracefully glides on the Vistula river for several years now. Brzeżańska’s artistic objects and installations aim to reassert the importance of autonomy and subjectivity by taking charge of one’s own needs, rather than letting oneself be moved by external forces.

Sculptures, paintings, and installations by Agnieszka Brzeżańska are on display until 30 March 2021 as part of the current exhibition So remember the liquid ground at the eastcontemporary gallery.

The webinar will be held in English. Here further informations about the meeting.
