(b. 1992, PL) Agata Wieczorek’s practice combines film and photography while moving between constructed documentary and documented fiction. She frequently operates with concealment and visibility, by entering and working with hermetic industries and socially marginalized groups in order to explore unexposed production and consumption of cultural “fetishes” — artefacts that represent the tabooed desires and utopian endeavours with reference to the body, gender and identity. Her works have been exhibited and awarded internationally, including the Finnish Museum of Photography, Helsinki; Capa Center of Contemporary Photography, Budapest; Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts (works in collection), Japan; among others. She is the Parallel European Photo-Based Platform 2nd Cycle Laureate in New Artist category and HELLERAU Photography 2020 – Center for Contemporary Arts Residency Award winner. She currently studies at Le Fresnoy – Studio National des Arts Contemporains. She previously graduated from the National Film School in Lodz, Poland (Master degree with distinction) where she studied Direction of Photography, and from the Strzeminski Art Academy in Lodz (MFA with distinction), where she studied traditional techniques, painting and fine art printing.
