Małgorzata Malwina Niespodziewana(1972)

In my work, I focus on the human form, his role, identification, emotions, functioning of the body. I am interested in the subject of gender and feminism in art. In my works I combine various artistic techniques, lately, graphic art, book art, drawing and installation. An important part of my work is my diary written daily for many years and my travels (especially Far East), which resulted in me creating an artistic concept of a universal body. I am a member of the female artistic Group 13 and I live in Kraków.
