Malgorzata Szymankiewicz

*1980, Poland

Malgorzata Symankiewicz lives and works in Poznan, Poland. Her paintings as well as her recent 3-dimensional works deal in different series with the abstract and try to define spacial relations. For Szymankiewicz abstraction is not only the opposite of representation but an integral element of reality: f. e. as thought process that we accomplish when trying to understand the world or as part of nowadays production processes. Her series Postproduction for example can be interpreted as an examination of whether originality is possible in the Internet age.
She is teaching at the Szczecin Art Academy.
