Man Bites Dog presents new ceramics and works on paper by London-based artist Paulina Michnowska. Drawing inspiration from everyday objects and situations, the exhibited works reveal the dark thoughts that pervade our banal existence. Depictions of a quiet Sunday a ernoon cohabit with disturbing scenes in which characters humorously chop their heads off and ght against big cats.
Paulina Michnowska (b. 1984, Poland) lives and works in London. She works foremost with ceramics and painting, exploring topics that range across autobiographical details, banalities of everyday life, historical folklore, the aesthetic of accident and injury.
