BERLIN—March 7 th , 2016 From the 19 th —25 th of March 2017, Art Space and CulturalCentre 'SomoS Art House' will display a painting and light installation created forSomoS by one of its current artist residents, Agnieszka Rowińska.

The artist will be presenting her largest-scale installation yet, and her first in the German capital: an installation involving translucent paintings, paper sculptures andsite-specific lighting offering a spectacle of appearing and disappearing, movingshadows, structures, silhouettes, and hues.

Her work consists of images interweaving figuration and abstraction; whereby eeriefigures of the human body are obscurely placed behind aesthetic semi-transparentpainted screens. New media additionally plays a significant role to the piece, withartificial beams of light being projected through the painted panels from behind the display. The subsequent incandescence of the human figures offer a sudden hallucinogenic phantom representation to the viewer.

Another important element to the exhibition are the chosen postures of the humanfigures by the artist. Each pose has been extracted from prominent paintings such as “The Birth of Venus” by Botticelli to perform a further statement about the déjà-vu experience.

Agnieszka draws inspiration of her work from ideas surrounding the spiritual; such as hallucination, vision and epiphany. She aims to explore the way in which the supernatural commentaries are encountered, developed and confronted according to region, class and background.

“ I explore layers of visual representation, searching for language that would expressthe transcendent ideas of spirituality. I try to find a way to talk about the invisible partof reality. I want to understand why some people believe in the supernatural and howthey experience these events.” - Agnieszka Rowińska

AFTERIMAGE is the product of a 3-month residency by Agnieszka Rowińska at SomoS.The result of the installation is a fresh perspective and contemporary reexamination ofexperiences surrounding faith, belief, ancestry and extra-sensory perceptions.
