In her installation Things we don’t talk about, Renata Poljak poetically elaborates psychological and social aspects of female aging and sickness, referring to the (still) omnipresent confined treatment of these issues by contemporary society.

In Renata’s latest work, hands run the show. They are crucial for understanding the work and are the main depicted motif, both in the sculpture and the video story of a woman who rejects bodily inadequacy in old age and denies the observer’s view which categorises her as the Other (old/infirm).
