Instagram takeover by Paula Gogola

12.10. 2022
Curator: Jelisaveta Rapaić

Stay tuned, Paula will be taking over our Instagram and Facebook for 24 hours on Wednesday, the 12th of October!

Paula’s practice focuses mostly on the analysis of the transgender experience in terms of both general and individual perceptions. Using the primary medium of painting, Paula’s artistic practice moves between abstraction and figural compositions. In her work, Paula uses the body as the main theme, viewing it as a matter whose potential to change shape directly influences multiple levels of empirical experience, testifying to both inner and outer worlds, and accenting transfemme position. Her artistic practice deconstructs certain sociological case studies in relation to the transgender experience, moving between various topics such as: reclaiming sexuality, the phenomenology of “transness”, social roles, investigation of cultural heritage and etc.

Paula Gogola has participated in group exhibitions at White&Weiss Gallery, Photoport and Pistori Palace. She is a graduate of Klaudia Kosziba’s painting studio of the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava. Paula is currently continuing her studies in the Painting 3 studio under the guidance of Josef Bolf and Jakub Hošek at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague.
