Agnieszka Kurant’s exhibition Unknown Unknown is part of Body of Work, a project developed by Lucie Fontaine in collaboration with Iaspis. During her talk Agnieszka Kurant will present her practice at large, focusing on specific projects that are related to the four following topics: Authorship, creativity, signature and labor. In parallel to her talk the artist will also inaugurate Lucie Fontaine’s exhibition space in Stockholm, a satellite of the space she established in Milan in 2008. For this occasion Kurant will present “Unknown Unknown,” a solo exhibition including artworks and projects such as Future Anterior (2007) and Map of Phantom Islands (2011). The exhibition opens March 28 from 7 to 9 pm and it will remain on view until April 16. It will be open from Monday to Friday from 9 am to noon and from 1 pm to 5 pm or by appointment.  
Agnieszka Kurant is an artist based in Warsaw. She is interested in the ways in which trying to interpret the world logically results in a fictional version of reality. Her works explore how things created – as fictions, rumors, paranormal phenomena as well as objects not existing materially – enter into economy and politics of contemporary world.
Lucie Fontaine is in residence at Iaspis during spring 2012. For more information about Lucie and Body of Work, please visit http://www.konstnarsnamnden.se/default.aspx?id=14929
