Agnieszka Polska’s dreamlike videos explore time and memory. Born in Poland, in 1985, while it was still a communist state, she is interested in obscured histories and cultural myths, particularly those of vanished artists. Using computer animation and live action she rescues, embellishes and re-animates events that are on the verge of oblivion, using a narrative style that is both serious and playful.

The Body of Words print relates to a new digital animation commissioned by Nottingham Contemporary called Watery Rhymes. The animation explores how language is influenced by the laws of physics and features a voiceover by artist David Bernstein and a soundtrack written specially for the work by acclaimed American musician Sun Araw. The print reproduces the last stanza of the script for the film
