IZABELLA RETKOWSKA (PL)
Retkowska’s videos are unsettling and fascinating: the human body is distorted, processed into rapidly changing ornaments – an aesthetic of violence, an evil game.
Izabella Retkowska’s photomontages play with body distortions, exploring lightness and darkness. Images of bodies are superposed, aligned, or juxtaposed. Retkowska plays with these, incorporating patterns and ominous music with the images. The created work is undefined and mysterious, leaving the viewer uncomfortable and curious.
