Agnieszka Polska is a Polish video artist and photographer. She’s made a name for herself creating videos that feature the words and works of forgotten or important twentieth-century artists and reimagining these by working them into new contexts, often using CGI, collage, script and animation. This recontexualiztion inevitably makes the artists and their works appear different from what was originally intended and shows how actions from the past and present affect each other.

Glass Of Petrol

For this. Agnieszka Polska has multiplied and appropriated her work Glass Of Petrol (2015) for the stages of the festival. The poetic, dreamy and psychedelic image shows a champagne glass filled with iridescent bubbling petrol. The works mimics society’s dependence on fossil fuels.
