Agnieszka Brzeżańska’s work explores elusive links between various natural forces and life forms on Earth, which she perceives as Gaia, a living organism. In this, she uses various registers of knowledge, from physics and philosophy to systems of cognition marginalized by modern science, such as alchemy, parapsychology, esotericism, native knowledge or matriarchal traditions. She is also interested in contemporary ecological practices. She is an author of paintings, drawings, films, photographs and ceramics. Since 2016, together with artist Ewa Ciepielewska, she has been organizing a mobile artistic residency on water under the title ”FLOW/PRZEPŁYW.”
Agnieszka Brzeżańska studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk (1992–1995) and later in Warsaw (1995–1997), as well as at the Tokyo University of Fine Arts and Music (1998–2001).
