Marta Krześlak (b. 1994) visual artist from Poland, based between Brussels and Łódź.


   I create process-based kinetic installations and collage videos. My work constructs landscapes from both memory and imagination. Experimenting with scale, kitsch and DIY techniques I renegotiate decisions already made with discarded objects. By putting my work in motion, I provoke a choreography of movements between object and visitor, creating an ever-shifting frame of reference through which to view the universe.


   I graduated from Multimedia Studio at the Academy of Fine Arts in Łódź, Poland (2018), studied also at Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw and École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Lyon. In 2023 I submitted my PhD thesis at Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow.

   I have collaborated with many public institutions on site-specific presentations and events. My works were shown at: Museum of Art in Łódź, Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, Gdańsk City Gallery, MoCA Hiroshima, Brno Industra Art, Temporary Parapet in Bratislava among others. I have been a resident at the Kooshk Residency in Tehran, Meet Factory in Prague and the International Studio and Curatorial Program in New York. I have received the Grand Prix at the Young Wolves Festival in Szczecin, the First Prize of the Grey House Foundation in Cracow, and the Gdansk City Gallery Award for Best Diploma.

   My works are in a public collection of Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź.
