ABOUT EXHIBITION

The exhibition is made of hard peels, common ones, which do not decompose. They are deposited in thick layer. The only thing that helps is everyday work or joy of this diverse bush. Different base, different density of paint is only a diverse form of the same hard peel.

Magdalena Starska born in 1980,she lives and works in Poznań. Author of drawings, performances and installations. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznań in 2005. She received a diploma with honors from Prof. J. Kozłowski and Prof. Ficner. At the turn of 2007/2008, she made a six-month trip focused on studying the culture of South America. A member of the Penerstwo group since 2008. In 2010 she received a scholarship from the Budget of the Minister of Culture, 2014 received a Young Poland scholarship. From 2018 she has a PhD in Arts and working as adjunct at the Studio of Space and Transformation at the Faculty of Media Arts at the University of Arts in Poznań. For the past 10 years, the foundation of her artistic activities has been the idea of creating community situations; how individual and personal can be valuable in a social sense. Starska senses in an intuitive way that the most action will give authentic contact between people present in a given space. Such projects have recently taken place at the Biennale in Kathmandu, Nepal (2017), during a stay on the island of Lombok thanks to cooperation with the Pasirputih organization. Thanks to her work at the university, Magdalena Starska can exchange her knowledge and experience with young artists and actively seek together with them the direction in which art should go in the modern world.

The project is co-financed by the City of Krakow.
