In her art, Alesandra Waliszewska, a painter od Apocalypse, explores non-contemporary sources. In recent years, the artist has repeatedly returned to the themes of oppression, torture, sexual subjugation and bestiality, both in the sense of hybrid species and bloodthirsty behaviour. The victims – less frequently than the perpetrators – are women, at the mercy of humanoid beasts and sadistic men. Waliszewska’s monumental opus is a morality tale for our time, one splintered into thousands of chapters, which, as the artist ironically put it, talking to Maurizio Cattelan. is a ‘warning against evil before the time of joy and sweetness comes’.
