Marta DeskurBORN 1962, Kraków
A distinctive feature of Marta Deskur’s works is a neutral background on which the artist leaves only the essential elements of the representation – a human figure or its fragment. Deskur negotiates social and feminist themes, sometimes reaching for Christian iconography. Her work confronts the symbolically significant with the artificial or virtual. Initially a painter, she now concentrates on video and photography. Deskur is a graduate of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Aix-en-Provence.
