Joanna MalinowskaBORN 1972, Gdynia
Joanna Malinowska lives and works in New York. The author of video works, sculptures, audio installations and performances. Music and anthropology play a crucial role in her artwork. The works of 20thcentury composers are reinterpreted by the artist by being juxtaposed with different cultural contexts. The work Arctic Elvis is a story about an Inuit imitating Elvis Presley. Despite the fact that Malinowska seems to refer to scientific research (she went on a journey in the footsteps of one of the first explorers of Inuit culture), she seeks rather ambiguity than normativity and rationality in the similar objects, myths and people of different cultures.
