Anna Molska at Malmö Konsthall

Anna Molska
Malmö Konsthall / C-salen
22.4 – 30.5 2010

Born in 1983, Anna Molska graduated from the art academy in Warsaw two years ago and has already attracted great attention for her films. The films have an unusually distinctive visual poetry and are often highly suggestive. She consciously uses a visual language which alludes to the aesthetics and culture of the former East bloc. Above all, she draws on the manifestations of Russian abstract art from the beginning of the 20th century – Suprematism and Constructivism – which tried to embrace all aspects of life in their activities. The belief was that art should participate in the creation of society. Molska’s images are full of such echoes from the past, which are an important part of Poland’s history today.
