AGNIESZKA GOTOWAŁA


I was born in 1986 in Wroclaw in Poland. I’m multidisciplinary artist. I work within visual and performance arts. I’m graduate of Photography at University of Fine Art in Poznan in Poland. After studies I started to develop also the performative workshop. I’m interested in interdependence between visual and performance arts as the correlation between what is visible and sensible. In my practice I focus on the research, exploration and transformation in the fields of states of human and nature, and the memory and identity they contain. I explore the borderlines of the processes connected with nature, sensuality, embodiment, feeling and recollections.

I constantly develop my experience in working with photography (mostly the analogue one), experience with various techniques of working with body (such as Butoh, Tuning Scores and others) and inspiration with a deep connection with the intuition, dreams and subconsciousness. Currently I also develop my own way of working with nature by drawing inspiration from the processes taking place in nature, its periodicity and environment elements to the process of contacting with own self. 

I’m involved in the creation of works, the implementation of individual artistic projects and creative cooperation. I’m taking part in art and research projects, artist residencies. My artworks are presented and published in Poland and abroad.
