Małgorzata Markiewicz (b. 1979), lives and works in Krakow, Poland. She is a graduate of the Faculty of Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow and in 2015 she obtained a doctoral degree there. In 2014 she participated in the PhD students seminar at KTH, Stockholm and in 2013 she completed a postgraduate course, Organizing Discourse, at Konstfack in Stockholm, Sweden.
The artistic practice of Małgorzata Markiewicz examines the complexity of contemporary gender dynamics in the context of the home environment and broadly understood society. She uses fabric as a medium in her works investigating the symbolism and significance of the message of clothing. In her work there is an implied feminist critique of intimations of the body, domesticity, fashion, and craft. In 2012 she was commissioned a public sculpture, a tribute to Witold Gombrowicz, a celebrated writer and playwright, as part of ArtBoom Festival in Kraków.
Her works were presented, among others, at Zachęta National Gallery of Art (Warsaw), Center for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle (Warsaw), MAXXI (Rome), The Photographers Gallery (London), Sculpture Park in Bródno – MSN (Warsaw), Central Museum of Textiles (Łódź), Matadero arts centre (Madrid); Berardo Museum (Lisbon), MOCAK (Kraków), Łaźnia (Gdańsk), The Cable Factory (Helsinki), SPACES (Cleveland, OH).
