Agnieszka Polska's exhibition The Demon's Brain consists of large-format video works and sound installation. The artist creates video works employing mainly found material, such as archive photography and illustrations, which she subjects to subtle interventions, whether animating them or working them into the existing image. In the process, the artist changes their primary context, simultaneously creating illusions of documentation. She is interested in myths, legends that are difficult to verify, as well as the mechanisms of remembering and denial in the system of constructing artistic canons. The Demon's Brain, the story of the medieval messenger's attempt to deliver letters to the manager of a Polish salt mine is just a pretext to take up issues of the future collapse of the salt mining industry and the current reality, turbo-capitalism, destruction of the environment and the overall exploitation that the era of industrialisation has brought with it. Agnieszka Polska presents in her work urgent questions concerning the individual's responsibility towards society.
