Magda Typiak b. 1991
Master of Arts, she completed her MA at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk and her BA at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Torun. In 2016, she studied at the Department of Film and Photography of the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan. Her works have been displayed on exhibitions and festivals in Poland and abroad – among other places in Athens, Vienna and Polish Culture Institute in Minsk (Belarus). In 2015, she took part in Warsaw Under Construction Festival, and in 2016 her video won her the main award of an international students’ art festival in Wozownia Art Gallery in Torun. The films, photographs, and installations that she creates are postconceptual creations.
In her minimalistic pieces – delicate deconstructions of spaces – she asks questions about identity, both her own as well as a collective one.

I am currently working to create and publish my first photobook called „Living is leaving” that will contain photographs and poetry on the issue of journey, traces, loss that indicates performativeness of the subjects’ becoming and its nomadic character.
I would also like to intervene in the city space with the technique of land art that will involve local residents to make together the message about the liberty. The project for this initiative is ready I am now searching for fundings and institutional patronage.
