Library Shelf Location 18.JANI
Publication Date 01 Oct 2012
Agnes Janich’s album Body Memory is a book about violence and love. It is a collection of works on the memory of war and Annihilation. Of the memory of love bodily and love eternal. Of the memory of tangled family ties. Janich, a young Polish artist, asks us: How to love in the shadow of the crematoria? How can we feel the past? Why does one hurt oneself? What are the limits of freedom with oneself, one’s body the Other? Is the mother-child relationship really a perfect one? She questions human relationships by observing behaviors we would rather forget about.
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 shown at 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 i.e. in the CCA Laznia, Gdansk and Garage CCC, Moscow. Agnes Janich is represented by Galerie Walter Keller, Zurich.
