Studio of Painting Space
> Martyna Ścibior
I am intrigued by the world around us, with beings and events, the reasons for certain conduct, roles which are often enforced by society and culture. It scares
me that one human is capable of destroying another, and the latter accepts this fate without protest. It scares me that humans are always able to excuse themselves for their actions, so they leave a dog in the woods because they simply have to go on holiday. And this incredible human ability to not see and not act. To avert one’s eyes. To say to themselves again and again that nothing can be done.
And how can you be free without awareness?

Martyna Ścibior chose the Studio of Painting Space having already selected to specialise in the subject of painting studies. She comes from Wąwolnica, a village “famous for miracles”, known for traditional folk religion but also full of superstition and deep, provincial prejudices. The artist, a modern and educated woman, well-aware of contemporary issues, decided to find a common denominator for these so distant worlds. She selected a pattern evoking associations with the work of rural women, a visually distinctive handmade fabric, manufactured in her part of the world, and in a persistent, almost compulsive process of painting, she transformed it into a metaphor for women’s lives. In the pieces thereby created she presented particular stages of life, from conception, through fully developed sexuality, to the end of life, using symbolic forms. In large compositions, with canvases used as elements of a puzzle, she created an impressive and compelling vision. The degree board decided that these pieces should earn her the Rector’s award.
Dogggs academic minor, 2012, balloon installation ongoing in a time period, height ca. 2 m Supervisor: Professor Mirosław Bałka Dogggs is an object dying, very slowly. Shows a regular mongrel. The fate of these mongrels depends on us. And people hurt them instead of appreciating. They kill and abuse them, they do not respect them. They believe that the whole world is one big toy for them. And dogs blindly believe in people. They are afraid, but they love unconditionally, instead of biting them to death.
