Magdalena Kita’s paintings are charged with grotesques and explicitly erotic representations and make multiple references – to children’s book illustrations, Art Brut, comic and trash culture, and Christian icons of saints – that link to various cultural narratives. In her very direct depictions, Kita counteracts stereotypical gender roles and societal power structures with a thoroughly feminist perspective.


The exhibition ABSOLUT VANILLA presents new works by the Polish artist (b. 1983 in Debica, PL, lives in Cologne). The motifs, emblazoned on wooden panels, shine in pop colours on golden backgrounds. The depictions, which often deal with moral aspects, while sometimes showing something immoral, reflect our consumer society, which is shaped by cyber realities and, according to Kita, in need of new icons.
