In her practice, Katy Bentall, a British-born artist based in Warsaw, has been elaborating on the theory of PLACE conceived by her husband Mariusz Tchorek, a translator, theoretician and co-founder of the legendary Foksal Gallery.

Her subtle, yet insightful interventions, painterly sketches and aphoristic inscriptions enliven and comment on the space, shedding light on the overlooked details and surprising contexts.During the meeting at the "Always There" exhibition in the Avant-Garde Institute, the artist will tell about her residency in the former studio of Henryk Stażewski and Edward Krasiński in spring 2011. By documenting the remaining traces of the artists' presence,Bentall has not only alluded to the original function of the place - a home and studio of two extraordinary individuals - but also made a new link tying the two men in a more metaphorical way.
