Sława Harasymowicz is a Polish-born artist now living and working in London. Working mainly with drawing, photography, screen-printing and found footage, Harasymowicz poses questions around the personal bound up with the public, the haunting presence of history investigated through trace, fragment and alternative scenarios. Her work is concerned with archives, memory and contemporary visual culture, as well as the relations between word and image.
Her recent exhibitions included: Ersatz, a solo show at the Ethnographic Museum, Kraków, Poland (2014), A Tourist in Other People’s Reality (other collaborating artists were Cecilia Bonilla and Joanna Rajkowska, Vestry House Museum London (2013), and Wolf Man, a solo show at Freud Museum, London (2012).
Harasymowicz is currently a PhD researcher at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London (Fine Art, practice-based, 2012-). She studied at the Royal College of Art, London (MA Visual Communication Art and Design, 2006). Originally from Kraków, Poland, she is also a graduate of the Jagiellonian University (MA English Philology 1997; her thesis examined expressions of protest in English and American post-war novel).
Forthcoming: a talk at the Museum of Contemporary Art, MOCAK Kraków, Poland (December 2014), to coincide with the Polish edition of Wolf Man graphic novel (Wydawnictwo Komiksowe, 2014).
Projects in progress include a site-specific exhibition and a book project.
