1. 12. 2022 – 31. 12. 2022
Zuza Golinska (b. 1990 in Gdańsk, living and working in Warsaw, PL) is a multidisciplinary artist who explores the impact of architecture and public space on the human individual. Her art reflects on the way in which human physical and mental wellbeing is influenced by the psychology of space in the time of civilisational acceleration and late capitalism. In her work, Golińska frequently disrupts the clear-cut division between the functional and the aesthetic as she examines the influence of spatial forms on emotions and decisions of users.
Zuza is a graduate of the Studio of Spatial Activities in the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. She wrote her master's thesis under the supervision of Anda Rottenberg. In 2015 she won the first prize at the Gdańsk Art Biennale. A recipient of the scholarships by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education (2014) and of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage (2016, 2020). In 2015 Golińska was nominated for the StartPoint Prize. In 2018, she won the ArtePrize awarded by the ArteVue and Delfina Foundation and in 2022 she became one of the three winners of Dorothea von Stetten Art Award. She presented her works in the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, Zachęta National Gallery, Delfina Foundation in London, National Gallery in Prague and many others.
