Małgorzata Markiewicz’s artistic practice explores the complexity of contemporary gender dynamics within the context of a domestic environment, as well as wider society. Working across sculpture, photography, textiles and performance, Markiewicz’s practice continues the legacy of the feminist avant-garde artists of the 1970s.
