Duration: 26.09-3.11.2019

Curator: Anna Lebensztejn

The Sanctuary exhibition is the first solo presentation of Anna Sztwiertnia’s work in a public cultural institution. For the duration of the exhibition, the artist transforms the Lower Gallery into a new version of the legendary New York Sanctuary Club, which operated in an abandoned Lutheran church and was the first gay disco in America, enjoying great popularity and crowds. Through objects and video, as well as sound, light and heat effects, the artist uses motifs taken from Christian rites or New Age formulas and rave and techno events, developing an artistic, trance-like ritual that allows her to go beyond the experience of everyday life.
