Two uniformed Russian officials stand among snowy birch trees, the pale forest background in contrast to the grey, bureaucratic foreground of their uniforms. It could be a chilling, serious scene, and yet, the whole effect is undone by the fact that these “officials” are locked in an intense kiss, hands clasped on each others’ buttocks: an absurd, yet tender reversal of the crackdown on “gay propaganda” in Russia. Kissing Policemen by contemporary Russian provocateurs... [more]

Katarzyna Kozyra at Museum Arnhem June 3rd, 2012 - October 7th, 2012
Posted 8/13/12

For all the talk of how shocking Polish artist Katarzyna Kozyra’s artwork is – her show at the Museum voor Moderne Kunst Arnhem is called Transgression after all – it isn’t the ostensibly scandalous elements in her work that cross lines. Blood, violence, disability, slaughter, cross-dressing, and all manner of genitalia abound, but the sophisticated art viewer is likely unperturbed by the presence of these offenses.

Starting from the 70's,... [more]

Katarzyna Kozyra at Postmasters October 18th, 2008 - November 15th, 2008
Posted 11/9/08

In her third solo show at Postmasters gallery, polish artist Katarzyna Kozyra exhibits a video and suite of production stills representing the final installment of In Art Dreams Come True, a series of quasi-theatrical productions, video installations, and interactive performances initiated by the artist in 2003. Kozyra’s summertale is a grotesque and enigmatic loose rendition of the classic fairy tale, Snow White, including a quintet of female midget-dwarfs, a drag queen, and an operatic dandy known as the Maestro...
