Pola Harrington, born in 1991, works and lives between Warsaw and Bali.
In her work, Harrington enters into discussion with woman position in social structures around the world.
Going deeper
She investigates patriarchal and matriarchal structures in search of the essence of equality and self-determination. This process is designed to liberate individuals through the act of encountering Harrington's artworks.    
Harrington confronts with stereotypical social alignments seen in European, American, and Asian cultures by emphasizing matriarchal  notions in order to bring to light the truth that all genders are equal. Through the deconstruction of well-worn cultural patterns, she undermines their constant, indisputable character and tries to influence the way we perceive them.

Harrington experiments with the form of the female figure, in particular she is focused on culture archetypes, witch are universally applicable culture patches that limit the uniqueness of a being. Her paintings contain subtly inserted, hardly noticeable at first glance emblems of felinity such as vulva or cliteries, which are a clever protest against the system

Through the deconstruction of well-worn cultural patterns, we can undermine their constant, indisputable character
and  influence the way we perceivethem.
