Agnes Michalczyk


"My art concerns the female body, its form, Its feeling and its continuous change. My search takes place between the conservative ideals of beauty, lust and abuse, using my body as a point of reference.
By photographing myself I explore the limits of self-awareness to uncover, overwrite and discover the female identity. By placing my body at its center, my work takes on a performative character with no attempt to be cool, distanced or objective."
