Elżbieta JabłońskaBORN 1970, Olsztyn
A graduate of the Fine Arts Department of the Nicholas Copernicus University in Torun, she earned her diploma in 1995. She currently lectures at the Drawing Institute of her alma mater. She won the first edition of Deutsche Bank Gazes in 2003. Theorists call her work (post-)feminist critical art; she herself prefers the motto “turning anger into laughter.” Her work deals with the status of contemporary women – their roles and prevailing stereotypes. Regardless of the medium she uses, these works are full of humor, taking and intimate and sympathetic looks at people.
She lives and works in Bydgoszcz.
