Aneta Grzeszykowska | Selfie | 2014 10.04. – 03.05.2015 | Fotomuseum Winterthur


Aneta Grzeszykowska works with sculptural, performative, and photographic elements in her Selfie series. As in her works Untitled Film Stills (2006) and Acrobat Book (2008), in this new series she explores the outer limits of photographic self-representation. Regardless of whether addressing the body, identity, or control over one’s self-image, Grzeszykowska confronts both seminal and contemporary themes in the history of art. For Selfie, the Warsaw-based artist reproduces parts of her own body in dyed pigskin. In a stringently composed series of images, Grzeszykowska presents deceptively real, painted fragments of herself.
