Monika Szydlowska (b. 1983, Warsaw)
In 2011 Monika Szydlowska completed her master’s degree at the University of Fine Arts in Poznan. During the latter part of her studies she worked as an assistant professor in the conceptual drawing studio.
Her practice entails performance and painting. Monika has participated in several festivals including the International Art Festival in Piotrków Trybunalski and Accion!Mad in Madrid.
Monika’s practice often regards fear and threat as well as health and safety legislations. She attempts to escape the theatricality of performance, embracing mess and spontaneity yet avoiding pathos.
