Works by Ewa Partum

Ewa Partum (born 1945, Grodzisk Mazowiecki near Warsaw, Poland) is a poetry artist, performance artist, filmmaker, mail artist, and conceptual artist.

Partum engages in linguistic and performative play in an attempt to discover new artistic language. This search for a "new language" is rooted in her belief that painting has exhausted its potential to generate new or transformative ideas. Partum's work also is motivated by touching on issues such as the notion of public space, the situation of women, female subjectivity and the political context of the 1980s.
