  • About the Artist
Born in 1971 in Torun, Poland, she lives and works in Cracow. In 1996, she graduated from the Nicolas Copernicus University in Torun, the Faculty of Fine Arts in professor Maciej Szankowski’s studio. Since 2010 she has been working at the Faculty of Art at the Pedagogical University in Cracow. Grant holder of The Ministry of Culture and National Heritage in 2008, awarded at the 7th International Arte Laguna Prize, Venice with Special Prize by Art Gallery “Amy-D Arte Spazio”, 2013. Maria specialised in installations, site specific projects and environment; she also makes spatial objects, video. She often uses sound. In hes practice, she is interested in the possibilities of cognising, sensing, and naming reality. She is a sculptor. The experience of space is importance to her. By the means of art, the artist tries to understand the nature and herself: she as the inherent element of the nature. She does realise that the cognition will never be final. But, when she creates spaces she tries to find some constant points of reference and a rule. The reality is a source of inspiration for her. She perceives it intuitively and sensually. Creating her spatial models she tries to create a physically and mentally consistent unity which may contain some particle of information about the world. The aim is to create a certain reality model parallel, based on the universal rules, clear to viewers. She tries to find the most proper means of expression of idea in order to create “a place” of a stronger emotional, sensual and semantic colouring. In the progress of work she tries to eliminate all that could disturb proper reception. She attempts to leave only the necessary points which give the possibility of recognizing anything, but at the same time they don’t offer clear answers. Usually she works on her realizations on two ways: she builds new spaces or fit into already found specific place. The essential element of her works, which is necessary to the proper reception, is time – connected to the site inseparably. Very often she uses such elements as light and sound. In this way she tries to create some logic completness.
