Late Opening: Thursday 3rd May until 9pm

Laura Pawela, the Warsaw-based multidisciplinary artist, has joined IMT Gallery for her second solo exhibition of work in the UK.

Sweet Heart Now Grown So Cold is an exhibition of major works made by the artist over the last five years, and unseen in the UK. Specially selected to highlight themes of metamorphosis, this collection spans video, sculpture, photography and drawing and includes a new site-specific installation.

The works in Sweet Heart Now Grown So Cold are connected by motifs that have appeared over the course of her significant contribution to contemporary art. Shifts in materials present a view of Pawela’s practice as an elemental collage of states in continuous transformation. Wisps of smoke in the video Smoke (2008) seem to reappear as hair in Untitled (2009), as a pool of urine in Sketch for the Study of Urine on a Street (2009) or as aeroplane vapour trails in Otke Notive (2011).

Laura Pawela was born in Rybnik, Poland in 1977. She studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts, Wroclaw and at the Institute of Art, University of Opole. She has exhibited extensively in Poland and abroad including BWA, Wroclaw; Gallery of Contemporary Arts, Opole; the National Museum, Warsaw; Centre Européen d’Actions Artistiques Contemporaines, Strasbourg; Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien, Berlin; the National Brukenthal Museum, Sibiu and the Centre of Contemporary Arts, Moscow. She has recently undertaken a residency at the Triangle Arts Association in New York, and lives and works in Warsaw, Poland.

Laura Pawela – Sweet Heart Now Grown So Cold has been made possible with the support of the Adam Mickiewicz Institute.
