Anna Baumgart, Acrylic resin, 2005
Anna Baumgart makes videos searching for the reality behind the identity. This Polish artist denounces social conditions where injustice is accepted out of habit.
The sculpture ‘Warrior’ represents the reality in the American Guantanamo prison. The image is that of a prisoner, undressed, standing on 2 cardboard boxes and insulted in front of his cell. The sculpture has an aggressive rat’s head behind it, it shows that social reintegration after this experience will never end well. The artist underlines an inhuman environment and pushes the boundaries of a reality that is not an illusion.
