The works of Zorka Wollny inhabit a space between art, theatre and contemporary music and are closely connected to the historic and functional context of specific architectural sites. Wollny understands architecture not simply as a material figuration, but rather as a cognitive space dependent on movement, an expression of cultural conditions and a scene of performative interventions. Following a critical interest in cultural codes, gestures and structural modes of behavior, which she observes e.g. in art production and reception and in environments of post-industrial work, she develops choreographic live-performances and concerts. The production of Wollny’s projects is based on a collaborative procedure and is often accompanied by public rehearsals and workshops.
Zorka Wollny (born 1980, Kraków, Poland) lives and works in Berlin. Her works have been shown in several contemporary art institutions in Poland, and she has participated in international exhibitions at Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, 2014; Academy of Arts, Berlin, 2013; Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst, Leipzig, 2012; Abteiberg Museum, Mönchengladbach, Germany, 2012; Turner Contemporary, Margate, 2011; Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade, 2011; Carrara International Sculpture Biennale, 2010; Z33, Hasselt, 2010; Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, Norwich, 2009; and Royal College of Art, London, 2009. Wollny is a lecturer at Szczecin Art Academy.zorkawollny.net
