Radomian Weekly
Oct 11th, 2012

On Friday, Oct 12th at 6pm, the MCCA Elektrownia will present the multimedia show Body Memory, a solo exhibition of the Lodz artist, Agnes Janich.

Agnes Janich comes from 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 took part in many solo and group exhibitions in the US, Italy, Austria, Spain and Switzerland. She has shown the 9th Sharjah Biennial, Zacheta, National Gallery of Art, Kunsthalle Exnergasse in Vienna, MLAC in Rome and the Auschwitz Jewish Center, an affiliate of the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York and MOCAK, Krakow. Next year, she will present her works the CCA Laznia, Gdansk and Garage CCC, Moscow.

From Fri, Oct 12th onward, we can see Body Memory, the Radom 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 wounds inflicted by Other's quotes on oneself. Lastly, That You Have Someone, erotic imagery combined with texts on Love in times of War. The show will be accompanied by a monographic catalog, Agnes Janich - Body Memory. It will open at 6pm and be followed by a panel Who is the victim here-the weak woman or the strong man? Is the perpetrator really privileged? with Agnes Janich, Monika Weychert-Waluszko (TVP Kultura, Art&Business) and Marta Raczek, PhD (Jagiellonian University).
The show is open to adult audiences only.
