Goshka Macuga

Goshka Macuga was born in Warsaw in Poland in 1967 and today lives and works in London. Curator, collector, researcher and set designer, Macuga is a multidisciplinary arist who combines different expressive forms in complex narrative works that are full of meaning. Building a bridge between historic documentation and truth, Macuga draws out affinities and connections, revealing things that would not normally be seen. In her work, history, politics, sociology and ethnography are combined with personal stories and references to other artists, enabling her to create works with multi-layered meanings.

Goshka Macuga has exhibited her work at the Fondazione Prada in Milano (2016), and Lunds Konsthall in Switzerland (2014), the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago (2012), the Zachęta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw (2011). She participated in the VIII Contemporary Art Biennale in Berlino, in dOCUMENTA XIII (2012) and the 53th Venice Biennale (2009). Macuga is included in the exhibition “Accrochage” at Punta della Dogana (2016).
