Dorota BuczkowskaBORN 1971, Warszawa
Dorota Buczkowska studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw (Faculty of Conservation and Restoration of Works of Art, 1991-1998; Faculty of Sculpture, 1999-2003) and at Villa Arson in Nice. Buczkowska skillfully works with different media, creating not only drawings but also complex sculpture installations, videos, site specific and other artistic activities. In most of her works she refers to the human body. The most important motif of her earlier works is the circulation process, as in biological structures, but also the one the artist discovers in the space built by man. What is characteristic of Buczkowska’s art is also balancing on the verge - of beauty and repugnance, gentleness and brutality, pleasure and pain.
