Angelika Fojtuch

performance art, video


Born in 1978, in Gdynia, Poland.

Angelika Fojtuch is an international visual artist - works primarily in performance art and its documentation, guest curator and educator. Fojtuch‘s art work has been presented at events and festivals throughout Europe, in Israel, Canada, China and USA, a.o. VIENNA FAIR, NADA Art Fair in Miami, SUPERMARKET Art Fair in Stockholm, 7a11d Fado Center in Toronto, The 2nd Biennale of Contemporary Art in Thessaloniki.

In 2006-08, she co-founded PORT PERFORMANCE - Forum for Performance Art.

PORT PERFORMANCE has conducted performance art workshops for international participants in Gdansk, Tallinn, Berlin and Tel Aviv. Her article about performance art is included in "Pedagogia de la Performance" a book published by Valentin Torrens.

She is presented at Flash Art, The World’s Leading Art Magazine - Artists Dictionary as one of the most interesting young Polish artists.

“Angelika Fojtuch’s performance work deals with the issues of communication, the role of body and emotions in interpersonal relations and the creation of identity confronting them with the mechanisms of culture. Focusing on norms of individual’s appearance in public space, she explores and crosses the borders of social conduct in order to reveal collective latent tensions, neglected fantasies or traumatic fears. Her work is usually conceived as a process of interaction with an audience, that Fojtuch often puts in uncomfortable or embarrassing situations. She often refers also to the specific social and psychological context of the performance’s site.”
