Aneta Grzeszykowska Self-Portrait

“The Polish artist Aneta Grzeszykowska has produced a large range of photographic work based on self-portraiture. Using recurring motifs of absence, disapperance and invisibility, she seeks to gain access to her ‘real’ self in order to investigate her identity.” (source: Autofocus Susan Bright)

Untitled Film Stills, 2006
Series of 70 photographs, c-print, app. 20 x 25 cm each

A precise, and truly Warsaw, remake of Cindy Sherman’s seventies classic “Untitled Film Stills” starring Aneta Grzeszykowska. In contrast to the original, Grzeszykowska’s photographs are in color. The initial composition and makeup has been strictly observed, while the props, clothes and setting has been chosen by the artist according to the modern standards and local possibilities. The restaging of all 70 photographs took one year. The role-play has reached its peak – effacing her own personality yet another time, Grzeszykowska returns it to Cindy Sherman, and at the same time imitates the both American artist and her fictitious film personifications.” (source:
