What are the limits of contemporary art, if any?
This question arises upon pondering Agnes Janich's performance.

On Fri, Oct 12th at 6pm, we can visit the opening of Agnes Janich's solo exhibition Body Memory and her performance Annoying Flower. Free entry.

Agnes Janich was born in 1985 in Lodz and lives and works in Warsaw and New York. She graduated from Photography in the School of Visual Arts. She deals with body memory and the memory of history and works in installations, film, photographs, sculptures, performances and public art. She has presented her works on several continents so far.

Body Memory is an exhibition presenting 3 of her projects: firstly, I Hate My Body When You're Gone, a series of films and pictures on self-destruction, fear of loneliness and the perverse fulfillment coming drawn from self-hurt. Secondly, Is a Whole More Than a Sum of Parts, an exploration of an young woman's journey reading her body through Other's quotes on her Self. Lastly, That You Have Someone, intensely erotic imagery combined with texts on Love in times of War.
