Lives and works in Cracow, Poland
Traditional ‘feminine’ craft techniques of sewing, crocheting, embroidery, used and found clothing, yarn, wool, and fabric have been Małgorzata Markiewicz’s main media. She has recently experimented in ceramics, neon signs and metal sculptures. The role and identity of women in social and domestic environments, gender roles and associated conflicts, the significance of home and power struggles in domestic settings are the predominant motifs that Markiewicz addresses through her art.
Born in 1979, Małgorzata Markiewicz lives and works in Kraków, Poland. She is a graduate of the sculpture department of the Fine Arts Academy in Kraków. She has recently been awarded a PhD there investigating the ideas of home and gender roles within the domestic environment as her thesis.
