  • Zuzanna Czebatul
    *1986, Miedzyszecz / PL
    Lives and works in New York and Berlin

    Czebatul works as a conceptual sculptor, producing her own materials and creating works that merge the differentiation between commercial product and artistic production. Her work is influenced by the aesthetics of ancient sculptures, modern forms of display and presentation, as well as the club culture of the 1990s.
    Investigating the power relations between object and viewer, Czebatul is often working with materials and themes representing strength or weakness depicted in their opposed forms. Her installations question their architectural circumstances and open up a conceptual space where the ‚inside and outside‘ and their potential can be renegotiated.
