Małgorzata Dawidek

Małgorzata Dawidek’s artistic interests are located somewhere between literature and the visual arts. The artist deals with the language aspect of communication – the relationship between words and their images and designata. From this viewpoint, Dawidek analyses issues of language awareness, borders and possibilities of language, as well as the human body perceived as a “reality text”.
The artist makes use of various media in the creation of her works –
textual objects and installations, painting, animation, written drawings
and hypertexts in galleries and public spaces.

Dawidek’s latest project is a three-dimensional, non-linear textual-visual “story within a story”. With the help of the body of the text, the artist talks about corporeality understood as a continuous narrative, a text in process. The “novel” has assumed the form of a map of the body, across which the viewer (reader) may travel, choosing their own route among 25 room-chapters describing limitations, emotionality, language and the behaviour of the body.
