Aneta Gzeszykowska, Headache, 2008Aneta Grzeszykowska focuses her practice on the physical, on the face and the body with image, photograph or video used in both its documentary aspect  as in its ability to transform reality. In her Untitled (Portrait) series she creates portraits of imaginary people whose non-existance and blank histories leave a void into which the viewer can superimpose their own preconceptions and ideas. In Headache, a naked and plainly female body (that of the artist herself), goes through a series of changes in a black void. It is in this blackness that the illusion comes to life, it dislocates the body and lends it an almost objectlike status that makes its dismemberment totally believable.  Aneta was born in Warsaw and studied at the Fine Arts Academy. Since 1999 she has lived and worked in Warsaw whilst exhibiting extensively throughout the world.
