Event description
Polish visual artist Anna Jarosz discusses her interest in gendered trauma and abjected bodies.

About this event

Anna Jarosz is a Polish visual artist, recently graduated from Valand Academy in Gothenburg, Sweden with a MFA in Fine Art Photography following previous studies at FAMU in Prague, Czech Republic. Her main focus of interest is gendered trauma and abjected bodies. By investigating these issues through the lens of still and moving camera but also by building spatial installations that combine sculptural objects, sound, video and other media, she focuses on trauma, trauma being a very personal experience to an individual or as a collective experience shared by many. She uses art as a tool to reverse socially constructed terminologies of gender and norms by emphasising the objectification of bodies (often in the context of her own experiences, social background and nationality). She touches upon the general obsession of gendered bodies and the unspoken weaknesses that are so often connected to the alienation of different kinds. Inspired by contemporary feminist thought, existentialist philosophy and psychoanalysis, she looks into deep aspects of trauma.

She exhibited her work and took part in residencies internationally in Austria, Czech Republic, England, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Lithuania, Peru, Poland, Serbia, Sweden, Wales.
