For her first performance in Los Angeles, in the newly constructed Garage Top over the rear garages at the Mackey Apartments in Mid-City, Patrycja German will present More Lust / Less Suffering, a study of the gray area between active and passive participation, between instinctual attraction and socially respectful distance.

Born in Wroclaw, Poland (1979), German currently lives and works in Berlin. Following her master studies at the Academy of Fine Art in Karlsruhe, Germany, she has established a practice centered around live performance, video, and photography that explores how a performative intervention can transform a space by altering its substance, significance, and social codes. German's performances usually include herself as subject and directly engage spectators by challenging their perspectives in unanticipated ways. She plays off of an audience's assumed relationship with a performer, and seeks ways of sharing responsibility for the project with her viewers.

She has shown and performed across Europe, with solo exhibitions at Galerie Bernd Kugler in Innsbruck, Austria and Galerie Anita Beckers in Frankfurt, Germany, and the Project Space at the Deutschen K√ľnstlerbundes in Berlin. She has participated in numerous video festivals.
