Agnieszka Polska brings photographs from newspapers, magazines, books as well as archival material to life using animation techniques in dreamlike, meditative video works. I am the Mouth II and Watery Rhymes were inspired by scientific descriptions of how sound waves travel through various materials. In I am the Mouth II an animated mouth, half submerged in water, functions as ‘the voice of an art work’. The video refers to Samuel Beckett’s play Not I during which a single spotlight is aimed at the actor’s mouth for the full duration of the performance.
