Agnieskza Kucharko, "Encounter"
The New Contemporaries series hosts recent graduates Agata Madejska and Agnieszka MM Kucharko as finalists at the Bloomberg exhibition
Originally from Poland, Madejska and Kucharko have completed their university studies at prestigious art universities in the United Kingdom. The next step is the Bloomberg New Contemporaries exhibition, which showcases young emerging artists across the country.
A graduate of the Wimbledon College of Art, Kucharko (31) centres her work on video or text and is often combined with a documentation on the process of production. She explores ways of understanding, framing and accommodating the conditions in which meaning in art and its environment has been interpreted. Language, both visual and verbal, form the sites of contention and miscommunication impregnated with emotion and power relays that are in continual transformation. At the current exhibition, Kucharko shows her film The Encounter (2009), which explores emotive language as part of a dialogue with art.
Agata Madejska was born 1979 in Poland. Today she lives and works in London, UK. She is a recent graduate of the Royal College of Art. In her work she explores the relationship between the common and the absurd, as well as the evolution of an object from an item of interest or icon to an everyday prop that is taken for granted.
The exhibition runs from November 25, 2010 to Janurary 23, 2011.
