Hannah Polak will soon end her residency at Subbacultcha’s Art Department. The output of her investigation into the depths and shallows of human psychology will be presented this Friday, on the opening of Polak’s exhibition You then arrive at an oasis of smooth roads and manicured fairways.
Engaging with the contemporary self by zooming in on idolized western pop culture and its unexpected connection to spirituality, Polak created an installation consisting of several videos and all kinds of objects that remind of childhood memories. Set up as a shrine, a tribute to the self, her work shows a striking account of what it means to be a human being in todays world.
