Sława Harasymowicz was born in 1970 in Krakow, Poland. She currently lives and works in London.
Sława Harasymowicz works with a wide variety of media spanning drawing, photography, screen-printing, found footage and text, but also increasingly new media such as sound and video. Harasymowicz’s practice explores ‘re-personalising’ and ‘de-personalising’ tactics, negotiating the positions between the personal and the public. Her point of departure is often archive, as a strategy and a cognitive tool to pose questions around the validity of recollection, the ambiguity of reconstruction, political representation and autobiography.
