Paulina Olowska is acclaimed for her paintings, photographs, films and performances that often feature iconic women and engage with historical and cultural memories. This special conversation between the artist and Whitechapel Gallery Director Iwona Blazwick explores Olowska’s work alongside her selections from the Christen Sveaas Art Foundation.
Paulina Olowska (b.1976, Gdansk, Poland) lives and works in Rabka-Zdroj in Poland. Like the 20th century European avant-gardes, she embraces all aspects of the arts from painting to graphics, fashion, stage and costume design, performance and activism; she even co-founded and designed an artist’s bar. Her monumental figurative paintings often feature modern women in magazine style poses against backdrops of utopian scenarios. ‘I like to use fashion in artworks as a tool to speak about past ideologies and allude to different movements and moments in history.’ Past exhibitions have included “Destroyed Woman”, 2019, Simon Lee Gallery, London, UK and her recent solo show “Haus Proud” opened at Metro Pictures, New York in November 2021.
