Lives and works in Krakow, Poland
Traditional ‘feminine’ craft techniques of sewing, crocheting, embroidery, with used and found clothing, yarn, wool, and fabric have been Małgorzata Markiewicz’s main media. Recently, she has also started experimenting with 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.
She is a graduate of the sculpture department of the Fine Arts Academy in Kraków. She has recently been awarded a PhD there which focusses on the ideas of home and gender roles within the domestic environment.
