    • Katarzyna Kozyra


    Master of Puppets is the name of Katarzyna Kozyra's latest project basically representing a summary of her oeuvre so far.

    Born in the 1960s in Warsaw, Kozyra today is one of Poland's most popular and most critically acclaimed female artists. Throughout almost all of her works, she combines elements of visual arts, theatre, performance, dance and choreography. A major exhibition shown at the Zach?ta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw in 2010 in fact marked the beginning of Kozyra's probably most extensive project.

    Especially created for the spaces of Schmela Haus in Düsseldorf and as the title already implies, the concept of Master of Puppets refers to a critical dealing with proportions, scales and sizes. The basic idea is to allow for a new reception of Kozyra's already existing works by either reducing or enlarging their respective sizes. Also the artist will work with viewing habits and reception in general integrating the given architectural characteristics into her curatorial concept.

    The exhibition organised by Zach?ta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw in the Schmela Haus of the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen is part of the cultural exchange programme "Klopsztanga. Poland without borders in North Rhine-Westphalia" with the support of the Adam Mickiewicz Institute, Warsaw.
