Agnieszka Mastalerz graduated from the Studio of Spatial Activities of Mirosław Bałka at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw in 2018. She was a guest student of Candice Breitz and Eli Cortiñas at Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Brunswick (DAAD scholarship for 2019/20) and of Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin at HFBK in Hamburg (2017/2018). In her artistic practice she puts focus on mechanisms of control and processes influencing and exploiting an individual. She uses a poetic visual language to analyse restrictive rules established within intimate relationships, communities, states, or companies. Mastalerz has recently exhibited at Fabbri Schenker Projects in London, the Center for Contemporary Art Luigi Pecci, Prato, MAXXI, Rome, Wschód Gallery, Warsaw, Starak Family Foundation, Warsaw, Deichtorhallen, Hamburg, Fondation Hippocrène, Paris, and the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw. She participated in the residency program Temporars Susch at Muzeum Susch in Switzerland, Artists Development Programme by the European Investment Bank Institute in Luxembourg, and the residency at Futura Gallery Prague in Czech Republic. This Autumn Agnieszka Mastalerz will participate in a group show together with Rachel Monosov and Nona Inescu at Catinca Tabacaru Gallery in Bucharest.
