The E|C Gallery (Chicago) is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Agata Czeremuszkin-Chrut "Skin on Skin". An opening night reception will be held at the EC Gallery, 215 N. Aberdeen, Friday, May 27, 2011, 6-8 pm.
The "Skin on Skin" series is a record of emotions and observations ... often subconscious, not always deliberate, or at least not thought over - rather felt and very intuitive. It revolves around human beings, their functioning in the personal and social sphere (the rela- tion between ME - YOU or ME - THEM).
"Skin on Skin" is about people depending on each other, about mutual relations, influences, pressures and manipulations. It's a turn toward the inside – from a noisy and chaotic street to the intimate sphere.
The fascination with structure, the pulse of a living metropolis, and life in anonymity and isolation that accompanies it, are the two poles between which we are suspended.
As a result, the surrounding reality is no longer realistic and does not fit the template to which we got used to ... it comes crashing down and leaves us puzzled.
Agata Czeremuszkin-Chrut (b. 1983, Poland) lives and works in Warsaw, Poland. She received her MFA f rom the The Academy of Fine Arts in Poland, Wroclaw in 2008. Czeremuszkin-Chrut is the recipient of the 2007 scholarship UE Socrates -Erasmus -Edinburgh College of Art .
