Aneta Bartos’ photography blurs physical and imagined worlds, capturing the surreal space between memory and fiction. Her work frequently reimagines how both figures and desire are represented, exploring the rebellious act of a body becoming self-aware and enjoying its own sexuality. Bartos frequently depicts her subjects in uninhibited poses inside fantastical dreamscapes.
Aneta Bartos’ works from Family Portrait series have been selected by David Zwirner Gallery through Postmasters Gallery to be featured on Platform: New York – a new online presentation by David Zwirner of leading independent galleries choosing the most relevant and exciting work from today’s artists.
