Agnieszka Mlicka

Agnieszka Mlicka, upcoming Polish/Dutch artist, uses the visual language of the architect to show the city as a system of architecture, linguistics and cartography. Inspired by urban planning, she combines painting and drawing in installations: “Your reality is a construction of my imagination. I produce your space”. She reflects on the urban planner’s ideological practice which aims at controlling and manipulating our urban surroundings, and emphasizes the distance between the architect’s mental space and the social space of the citizens who are the real ‘producers of space’. Her works are a critique of urban planning and simultaneously a fascination with the order and belief in perfection through the planned architectural environment.

Agnieszka received her MA in Painting at Wimbledon College of Art in 2007. She did a research project ‘Tracing Space’ in the Centre for Drawing Project Space at WCA in december 2006, as well as a site-specific project for the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford, May 2006. Her works have been included in: Invasion, Castle Gallery, Queenborough (2007), Postgraduate Exhibition, WCA (2007), 100 Degree Show, Ruskin School of Fine Art, Oxford (2006), The Boundary Art Prize, Boundary Gallery London (2006), Montana Butch, Great Eastern Hotel, London (2005), Atomic Art Bomb, Modern Art Oxford (2004).
