Ewa Juszkiewicz

Ewa Juszkiewicz (Ewa Juszkiewicz)

"I am interested in the way that women have been seen and portrayed across centuries."

b. 1984. Lives and works in Warsaw, Poland.
She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk with a MA degree in painting and is currently pursuing a doctorate degree at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków.
She works in the fields of painting, drawing, installation and animation.

"My work is criminal in nature. It relies on borrowing, I freely draw on the resources of the visual culture. I am interested in recycling history. By means of transformation, fragmentation and recontextualisation of the selected portraits, I intend to build a new narrative. I want to redefine them using my own language that will replace the traditional language of the piece.

I am particularly interested in the way that women have been seen and portrayed across centuries. I explore the phenomenon of transgression, understood as crossing the boundaries of aesthetic norms and canons of picturing women, as well as the social and cultural expectations regarding their image, seen from the perspective of the history. I also aim to analyse and question the classical canons of beauty. I intend to stretch and redefine the boundaries between gender relations."
