Agnieszka Karasch is a visual and performance artist holding an MFA in graphic arts from The Fine Arts Academy in Warsaw. In her artistic research she investigates the potential of embodied collaboration. Inspired particularly by the philosophy of Maurice Merleau-Ponty but also by Laban Movement Analysis, contemporary dance, performance art and actor’s training, she uses drawing as a space of co-action. The medium then serves as an entry to the unique nature of the embodied exchange. In her studio practice she creates images based on the body's geometry and expression.
