JOANNA PIOTROWSKA

now represented by Galerie Thomas Zander!

We are delighted to announce that Galerie Thomas Zander now represents Joanna Piotrowska!


The practice of London based Polish artist Joanna Piotrowska (born 1985 in Warsaw) involves photography, video and performance. After studying Photography at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków, Piotrowska received her MA from the Royal College of Art in London. Her work was exhibited by renowned institutions including Tate Britain (2019), Kunsthalle Basel (2019), 10th Berlin Biennale (2018) and MoMA, New York (2018). She is the 2018 recipient of the Lewis Baltz Research Fund Award.

 

Piotrowska’s œuvre investigates the interaction between the human body and the environment, which is charged with social, political and anthropological issues. Through decontextualisation and exaggeration the artist challenges seemingly obvious settings and assumptions, such as the common equation of home=family=safety. Her work thus invites viewers to reconsider certainties that were taken for granted.
