Almine Rech London is pleased to present The Grass divides as with a Comb, an exhibition of recent work by Polish artist Ewa Juszkiewicz, on view from June 18 to August 1, 2020. This will be the artist’s first exhibition with the gallery.
Through the deconstruction of traditional, historical portraits, Juszkiewicz enters into discussion with the visual conventions that they represent, and undermines their constant, indisputable character. The artist confronts the schematic representation of women in art history. She critically refers to the position and role of women in society and culture in the past, and to their insufficient presence in the official version of history.
