Agnieszka Rowińska joined SomoS Art House in January to begin her three-month residency. A recent graduate of the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts, Agnieszka is also from Warsaw and comes to Berlin in order to focus on a project that combines the disciplines of painting and new media through the application of a site-specific installation involving transparent materials and shadows.

Drawing inspiration from ideas surrounding vision, hallucination and epiphany, Agnieszka Rowinska creates images interweaving figuration and abstraction.

I explore layers of visual representation, searching for language that would express the transcendent ideas of spirituality. I try to find a way to talk about the invisible part of reality. I want to understand why some people believe in the supernatural, how they experience these events.

Agnieszka Rowińska, Artist’s Statement

At SomoS, Rowińska will be working towards a large-scale interactive installation that viewers can experience unconditionally and exclusively; a spectacle of thoughts surrounding hallucination, spirituality and epiphany.
